Mission Statement

Blue Sky Bakery & Caf? does more than create delicious pastries using the freshest, highest quality ingredients. As a nonprofit organization, we also raise the edible consciousness of our community by providing transitional employment to homeless and at-risk youth. Social change, powered by your appetite.

Description

The Blue Sky Employment Program provides homeless and at-risk youth with twelve weeks of paid, supportive employment at Blue Sky Bakery & Caf?. Youth gain valuable experience in cooking, baking, maintaining a sanitary work environment, delivering catering orders, customer service and cash-handling.

Youth meet each week with our staff and volunteers to address issues such as professional communication, time management, conflict resolution, and diversity. They also receive assistance updating their resumes, practicing interview skills and seeking long-term employment.
