The Co-Op is Promise South Salt Lake’s newest effort. Opening in fall of 2022, this is our first program that focuses on emerging adults and beyond, especially those transitioning into new learning, jobs, careers, or business ventures. For many, this means not just changing a job, but getting support along the way with things such as housing, childcare, basic needs, and other support services.
The Co-Op is a space for City residents, community members, groups, and partner organizations to connect, work, learn, and grow. Located inside the South Salt Lake Community Center, we offer resources for Digital Inclusion, Financial Empowerment, Career & Business Advancement, and Basic Needs Services and Referrals. The Co-Op helps community members in the following areas:
- Digital Access & Inclusion
- Career Attainment & Advancement
- Entrepreneurial & Small Business Assistance
- Financial Security
- Wraparound Services & Referrals
- Post-Secondary Education Achievement
- Workspaces, classrooms, and event spaces.
- Classes, training, and learning activities
- Reservable private meeting rooms and equipment
- Spaces for groups, nonprofits and partners to offer services or conduct business
- Drop in to take a tour, meet our staff, and see what opportunities await!

Volunteer at The Co-Op
There are a few volunteer opportunities at the Co-Op. We are looking for volunteers who are outgoing, enjoy helping others, and can maintain a space that is safe and inclusive.
We have noticed that one of the main things preventing families from attending classes and events is a lack of childcare. Families, and especially women aren’t able to leave their house to attend a class when they don’t have a safe place to take their children. Childcare Volunteers are needed multiple days a week, typically for 1-3 hours at a time at times ranging from 10AM - 8PM. You will be working with families who are attending our programs and working with children of all ages. Email Kylie McMorris.
Help South Salt Lake bridge the digital divide by becoming a digital navigator! As a digital navigator, you'll meet one-on-one with community members to help address their digital needs from acquiring a low-cost computer to signing up for internet service to learning fundamental tech skills. Volunteers do not need to be particularly proficient at computer skills. Email Corky Reeser.
