Cafe Barnabas exist to:
Connect adult mentors with students using quality loose leaf tea
People need a 3rd space. What? A 3rd space is relational environment that isn’t home / work / school. For the millennial (age 18-28) and Gen Z’er (age 9-18), a “coffee shop like” setting has become a popular choice. We desire to develop 3rd spaces where caring adults earn the opportunity to be available for students. For a teen, school years can be hard. Our goal is to encourage and challenge students to make positive decision during these formative year.
Cafe Barnabas’ focus is work force development, mentorship, resume building, volunteerism, and community development.
