Ventana del Soul provides food service and culinary training to youth who are
at risk of falling further into the justice system.
Ventana del Soul provides a safe place for youth (ages 10+) to complete court-ordered
community service. Volunteers from area universities job coach and mentor youth
to help them learn how to work in a cafe while encouraging them to do positive
things for themselves, their families and their community.
Youth receive food handling certification; gain valuable food service experience;
help serve food to members of non-profit and community organizations (great
role-models); learn that volunteering can be a positive learning experience;
and that they can make a difference by contributing to society.
