Ventana's Youth Programs

Starting in Fall 2013

  • Young Adult Vocational Training (ages 16-25)
  • Positive Community Service for Youth (ages 10-17)

Orientation is required for Community Service Youth. A parent or guardian must accompany youth to orientation and attend the first 30 minutes. For more information please call (512) 707-7447

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.
