Youth Development

The Lift offers job and life skills training for youth from Saint Paul’s East Side neighborhood. Through evening programs designed to address critical thinking and emotional wellness—from team building and problem solving to self awareness and conflict resolution—students in grades one through twelve develop a toolbox of skills that will empower them to become healthy, productive, and caring adults.

The Lift also runs a job skills program at The Plaza Theater, where young adults, many of whom are in their first ever job, learn to become star employees by taking initiative and practicing personal responsibility—all in a safe, friendly environment.

"We have been podrishioners for several months. Our daughter, son-in-law and grandkids moved back to California after living in MN for 10 years. They attended Woodland Hills for about a year before they moved. Now we all go to the beach together on Thursdays, come home and have dinner together, then we watch last Sunday’s sermon together. It is a special day for our family."

– Dale and Patricia, from California
