BENEFITING: INTERFAITH NEIGHBORS INC

EVENT: OceanFirst Charity Challenge 2017

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2017

THE STORY:

KULA CAFE is a hands-on community program that provides training in the hospitality industry for jobs in Asbury Park and beyond.


The Issue: Many young adults face significant barriers to employment but also have the desire and willingness to create change in their lives. In a neighborhood that faces significant unemployment, poverty, and the need for specialized training opportunities, Kula Café gives participants and residents the opportunity to work together in the community and for the community.


Through its entrepreneurial approach, the Kula Cafe training program works with participants to address obstacles to employment with patience, planning and experience in a manner that a traditional training program may not be in a position to offer. 


The Solution: The Kula Café Training Program provides 16 weeks of job-readiness training, hands on experience in the Kula Café, and includes a 4 week paid externship with local restaurants, allowing business owners to see the skills the participants have learned. Successful youth then find permanent jobs in the community, leading to stability and a brighter future.


Giving Back: Every Monday, outside of the Kula Cafe, meals are offered by participants to individuals in need, free of charge.  The program now serves approximately 200 patrons each week.  


How Your Donation Helps:

$35 - Allows one participant to take the ServSafe Food Handler exam.

$150 - Supports one participant while he or she receives Workforce Readiness training.

$400 - Allows a participant to complete two weeks at an externship.

$750 - Provides books and materials for 10 participants.

$2,500 - Supports one participant for twelve weeks of training at the Kula Cafe!
