LiftOff Paid Training for Out of School Youth

Lift Off is a new training for out-of-school youth.  This partnership between Children and Families of Iowa’s Youth Work Readiness Program and ArtForceIowa will offer train eight youth in marketing, entrepreneurship, digital arts, and screen printing.   “Our target demographic for Lift Off is youth who have already graduated, and are underemployed,” reported CFI’s Vice President for Community-Based Programs, Cheryl Johnson, “We really believe that this program will help steer youth in the direction of employment or higher education.”  In addition to training, youth will also be placed in work-experiences at downtown locations including the Des Moines Social Club, West End Salvage, and the Science Center of Iowa.
