AKELEY — The century-old First Lutheran Church of Akeley holds a grand repository of possibilities, a corps of volunteers encouraging the underemployed and unemployed with a message:


“Yes, You Can!”

No ordinary “church basement ladies” are these. The initiative is a vibrant “outreach to the community.”

The Yes, You Can mentors/volunteers work one-on-one with clients to hone job interview skills, writing a resumé, learning basic computer skills and more.
