Old Skool Cafe, is the first known youth-run supper club that highlights young performers in a full range of artistic expressions. Our passion is to provide at-risk youth with a place of employment and empower their talents.
Our desire is to give a voice to the underprivileged youth of San Francisco, and to help provide them with skills that can help pave a way for a better future. Recognized as one of the most effective youth programs in the Bay Area, Old Skool Cafe is connecting the stories, talents and messages of a young generation, with people whom they would never normally come in contact with.
The building where all of this happens is in need of a renovation. This remodel will allow us to seat more people and update all building codes. The finished project will include:
*A renovation and enlargement of our kitchen complete with a new hood and stove, as well as a walk-in cooler.
*A beautiful new stage, complete with lights and a new curtain.
*The expansion of our dining area.
*A marquee sign on the front of the building.
*Fresh paint and decorations for the building.
Old Skool Cafe is located in the Bayview but serves youth from all over San Francisco. Our hope for the renovations is to help us grow and give our neighborhood a place for good food, good fun and great entertainment, all while helping to keep kids get off the street and into a workforce development program. We can't do this without your help and we appreciate each and every pledge. If you're in the Bay Area, come by sometime. As we like to say, come hungry and leave inspired!
