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.

"My almost-three-year-old asks every day if we can go to church. Thank you, Woodland Hills, and all the Heroes Gate volunteers for creating such a great environment for kids. My husband and I met at WH six years ago and now our son counts down the days until we get to go again. My heart could burst."
