More Than Words, a nonprofit bookstore that aims to help at-risk youths, is launching a new café training program, to provide young adults with skills in business, food handling, and customer service.
The four-year-old bookstore/social enterprise seeks to empower youth “who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless or out of school, to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business,” Executive Director Jodi Rosenbaum said in a press statement.
The Moody Street bookstore has helped over 70 youth “pursue their education, obtain jobs and develop plans for their transition to adulthood and self sufficiency,” Rosenbaum stated.
The new cafe will allow the nonprofit to expand training, from about 16 young people to about 24.
