Empowering Adults

We are celebrating the graduation of seven participants this quarter! Collectively, they all express appreciation for the Life Advocate engagement and the relationships built through the experience. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Life Advocate, we are always in need of more to walk alongside our participants during this transformational time in their life!

Contact Kevin Saunders at kevin@upworksmn.org to get involved with the Empowering Adults program.


Enriching Schools

Love Your School Day empowers local families, neighborhood organizations, businesses, and churches to make a lasting difference in the lives of children and the success of our local schools, simply by showing up and asking the question, “how can we serve?” As a new school year begins, we are excited about deepening our current partnerships with schools and continuing to grow new partnerships!

Contact Ken Norman at ken@upworksmn.org to get connected with the Enriching Schools program.
