Try Pie's Impact in the Cedar Valley

We believe in using work as a tool for equipping our teens and strengthening our community.

Research has shown that working just a few hours each week as a teen can increase the likelihood that that teen will later attend college, and decrease the likelihood that they’ll be involved in crime activity. A job at Try Pie means a student will participate in programing, work and learn alongside co workers from different schools, different towns, and different experiences as they build skills for their futures.

Here’s what our teens are saying!
