AMOS Project Iowa: 10th Anniversary

AMOS’s Project Iowa 10th Anniversary Celebration is on Thursday, March 24 from 5:30-9 p.m. at the Loft, 100 Indiana Avenue in Des Moines on the second floor. Cocktails and Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. with Silent Auction, followed by a meal and program at 6 p.m. We invite you to share in this success story.

About 13 years ago AMOS, through one-on-ones and house meetings, identified the barriers and challenges individuals faced in achieving the American Dream in central Iowa. The overwhelming response at these meetings was that people struggled with finding a livable wage job that enabled them to take care of their families. Yet despite this obvious need for better employment, many central Iowa businesses were facing a shortage of skilled workers to fill many positions as is true today.

Project IOWA was established in 2011 to address the skilled workforce gap that was negatively affecting both individuals and businesses in Central Iowa. Project Iowa was created by AMOS and sustained by AMOS in its early years but has been an independent program for a few years. Now we are ready to celebrate its 10th Anniversary and hear some of the stories of life changing employment in career opportunities.

Plymouth Core Team has purchased four tables of eight, so there can be no cost for attending. Contact Mark Rosenbury, George Dorsey, Emily Chafa, or Sheena Thomas to get a seat at one of their tables. Mark, Sheena, Emily, and Erin Riker are the hosts. Or you can go to Project Iowa’s website here to sign up for the celebration individually. Tickets are $35 for individuals and $250 for a table.
