After school Coffee House is a unique way of connecting with youth who stay at the school for various reasons. Serving [free] hot chocolate, lattes, mochas or chocolate milk, a few snacks with no agenda or time limit allows for deeper conversations. This is where beauty happens. They learn that we do love them unconditionally and are interested in their stories - for some it's a longing they have not recognized in themselves.
Students are given the opportunity to help serve and learn the espresso machine. They are invited to share their ideas of an event they may need help organizing or join us in one that we have organized for them. Long term relationships are built through this time together.
We typically have student help, however sometimes we need one extra adult volunteer to join us. If you would like to be put on a potential list of volunteers, let us know! This would require more training than our breakfast volunteers.
Friday Night Drop-in:
If you enjoy spending longer period of time with youth in deeper conversations, this may be a good option for you. From 4-7pm, there will be opportunity to play games, help with homework or just hang out! Dinner will be served from 5 until 6, the evening ending with a Life Discussion, encouraging our youth to think beyond their current understanding. Carefully selected adults will add to the healthy and holistic life of a youth! If this sounds like you, please fill out the application form on the right side of this page.
