Empowering Adults

Empower Your Community

Empowering Adults engages committed, motivated individuals who have overcome various life challenges. Through guided support, participants work with 1-2 trained volunteers  (LIFE ADVOCATES). Utilizing a self-discovery tool  as a starting point our participants are encouraged to dream towards their future. Over the 3 month engagement they develop goals and execute tasks toward education and / or sustainable employment. UpWorks partners with faith communities, businesses, and nonprofits to provide strong support throughout the process.

How it Works

“I thought addiction destroyed my chances at pursuing my call to ministry. However, my life advocates spoke life into me and reminded me that God has not given up on me. Now I am finishing his ministry training and pursuing my call to ministry. I am rediscovering the plan God has for my life and I recently become a Life Advocate so I can pay it forward!”

Empowering Adults Program Graduate

“I was raised in a dysfunctional family environment where I was introduced to drugs and alcohol at the age 12. I carried this addiction through my adolescent and early adulthood years causing legal trouble. I entered UpWorks two months before graduating from Minnesota Adult and Team Challenge. During my journey with the UpWorks Life Advocates, I completed my self-discovery and determined that I had a passion for warehouse logistics and electrical work. I landed a job as a forklift operator starting over $15 per hour. In three short months, I have been promoted. My employer is sending me to Electrician Training School (tuition paid) and plans to move me up in the company. I am so excited about the bright prospects of my future.
