LifeWorks

LifeWorks transitions youth and families from crisis to safety to success. In partnership with the Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop initiative, LifeWorks owns and operates a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop at the corner of 5th and Lamar in downtown Austin. The shop provides initial job training, a positive first-time employment experience and graduates at-risk youth to career-oriented jobs, career training programs and higher education. Impact Austin’s grant provides funding, during the first two years of operation, for salaries, training materials and scholarships. Profits from the PartnerShop go toward continuing the training program when the Impact Austin grant terminates. For more information about LifeWorks, visit http://www.lifeworksaustin.org/
