As part of the Hope Institute’s Vocational Program, the Hope Cafe and Hope Inclusion Cafe and Play provide on the job training for our students. While working in the cafe, students are able to gain knowledge and experience in customer service, food preparation, baking and preparing orders. They obtain real world job skills that will translate into competitive employment opportunities as adults in their communities. Students are able to run the day to day activities of the cafe as independently as possible with staff supervision. We love to serve our community, so we are constantly adding new recipes and choices to our menu. Stop in to sample our menu items and to support Hope today!
