A new leadership training and mentoring service for high school and young college students opened April 23 at 1315 11th St. next to Rustic Coffee Bar.
Owner Jason Kloster started the business in 2007 to help coach high school students through their senior projects and prepare them for college. The business has grown to include teen leadership camps and career development programs.
Kloster plans to use the 1,300-square-foot space as an after-school drop-in workspace for students. With wireless Internet and two large screens for presentations, the space is also available for businesses to rent for meetings or training sessions.
Kloster is hosting an open house May 1-2 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call Jason Kloster at (206) 679-3311 or visit www.educatingfutureleaders.com.
