We’re excited to be partnering with Scarf; the crew who are providing hospo mentoring for young folks facing barriers to work. We’ve collaborated with them to expand the coffee element in their 10 week program by running free, dedicated courses at the trainees at our Melbourne Barista Academy.
Whether coming from a refugee background, awaiting asylum or due to other constraints, cracking into the employment scene can be challenging. The focused, hands-on 10 week programs run by Scarf act as a launchpad for skills, confidence and community. In collaboration with some of the most respected restaurant, bar and café professionals around Melbourne, trainees are offered real world experience with amazing mentors by their side: they’re paid, valued and become part of a supportive learning community. To date, Scarf has offered a total of 232 trainee positions, provided $7260 of paid work experience and provided 14,790 hours of incredible hands-on training.
Hospitality upskilling + helping people get a leg up? Sign us up, we said!
