    Next time you bump into Youth Emergency Services & Shelter of Iowa (YESS) Executive Director Steve Quirk, ask him about the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute (GDMLI) project that his nonprofit was a part of. The project was one of five selected from more than 20 applications submitted to GDMLI this year. A team of 10 2016 GDMLI class members worked to solve a challenge that YESS has retaining its direct-care employees. The challenge isn't unique to YESS, which provides a safety net of services designed to care for kids and families when they need it most, but rather it's one that afflicts nonprofit groups all over the country that operate in such high stress environments, Quirk said. The GDMLI team created a retention and onboarding plan they dubbed "YESS University." Quirk's hope? Make the program portable to other nonprofits that have staff and volunteers who work in high-stress environments.

    For Justin Mandelbaum, the mission at his artist studios on Keosauqua Way hasn't changed, just the name.

    Mandelbaum, in Washington, D.C., as part of the Greater Des Moines Partnership's annual pilgrimage to the nation's capital, said the building at 900 Keosauqua Way where he plans to provide affordable studio space for artists is now called Mainframe Studios, in recognition of the original owner's intent to house mainframe computers in the four-story, 160,000-square-foot structure.

    Mandelbaum originally called the building DesMoinesArts, but the name caused some confusion among folks who wondered whether the projects was affiliated with the Des Moines Arts Center, Des Moines Performing Arts or the Des Moines Art Festival, he told members of the Partnership delegation.

    "Our name was confusing from the beginning," he said. "Not all of us have a good name." Mandelbaum bought the building in 2014 from CenturyLink.
