Event description

Description

Proceeds in support of programming for youth at The Hallway Café and Takeaway

4-Course Dinner, Program, and Silent and Live Auction

The Hallway Café program provides knowledge and experience for youth through a combination of life skill development, continuing education, and a training program focused on positive employment traits and technical hospitality skills within an operational café. Operating as a social enterprise, the program is designed to lessen the challenges and barriers at-risk youth struggle with and that limit their potential to find and retain gainful, meaningful employment. The Hallway Café program works alongside other e4c programs in the community to eliminate the barriers youth face in terms of homelessness, poverty and addictions.

Of the approximately 225 youth aged 16-30 that access Outreach Support each year, 40-50 will participate in work experience at The Hallway Café, and 60% will move directly onto employment or further education – making a significant impact in the lives of these youth. With the aim to assist more youth each year, the 2019 Gala’s goal is to raise needed funds to both increase the number of youth we can serve and increase the depth of programming. All funds raised from this event directly support much needed programming such as training allowances, follow-up, and outreach support work.
