The Café One program aims to provide a safe and supportive environment to empower and support young people aged 16 to 24 years who are disengaged from schooling, homeless or at risk of homelessness or experiencing disadvantage by providing employment training, to help break the cycle of disadvantage and achieve goals towards independence. Café One mobile van moves to different locations with the support of local councils and business groups, helping to highlight the program to the wider audience and engage various communities, and improve the social skills of the participants. The presence of the Café will serve to encourage other at risk young people to approach and seek information and referrals, and provide additional opportunities for our case workers to engage at a much deeper level with the young people through an assessment of broader needs and case plans to help them to achieve their goals.
