Spring 2020 Grant Recipient: Cafe Momentum
for March 29, 2017
Café Momentum provides a transformative experience through a 12-month post release internship program for young men and women coming out of juvenile facilities. They rotate through all aspects of the restaurants, focusing on life, social skills, coaching and development. This Dallas-based restaurant and culinary training facility transforms young lives by equipping at risk youth with life skills, education and employment. After 12 months of the internship, successful students are able to graduate from the program and are able to be placed with one of the community partnerships. The young men and women are now employed, tax-paying, wholly contributing members of society.
