Each can sold provides 10 minutes of paid training for street-influenced youth
Street Bean Coffee Roasters is a nonprofit organization located in Seattle, Washington. Its mission is to help street-involved youth transition away from street life to stable homes and gainful, long-term employment.
Street Bean offers a unique apprenticeship program which employs youth in their high-end coffee shops and roasting operations. This program has a 90% success rate of helping these young adults transition away from street life, and reclaim their lives.
Over 1,500 young people (ages 12-26) in King County spend each night without stable housing. Most have been disconnected from opportunities to succeed due to a myriad of reasons outside their control.
Young people need more than
just a job to move beyond street life;
they need the opportunity to form a
new identity and the chance to
discover who they are
and can become.
