The Isiserettes are composed of both males and females ranging from the ages 7 to 18 years old. Two of the major goals set for the youth are to build character and social skills.  We stress the importance of a formal education while helping the youth develop their creative and natural abilities.  We pride ourselves on our ability to expose the group to other diverse communities and environments different from their own.

The Isiserettes have traveled throughout the State of Iowa as well as the United States serving as ambassadors for the Black Community, the city of Des Moines and the state of Iowa.  The team has been awarded numerous trophies and awards for their performances.  We have been honored to receive the NAACP Community Service Award of Excellence and the KCCI TV-8 Leading the Way Award for Volunteer Service.
