Indeed, our goal is to develop sustainable revenue streams to support CRYP into the future. Our social enterprises are so much more than that, however. They ensure that Cokata Wiconi is the vibrant community gathering place we envisioned when we opened its doors in 2006. And, they’re dynamic working classrooms, thanks to our teen internship program.
In the Keya Cafe, our young people learn critical job and life skills, receive essential training and certifications, and gain valuable work experience that will serve them well as they enter the job market. They learn how to work as baristas, cooks and wait staff; operate and maintain a commercial kitchen; manage the cash register and e-commerce; conduct inventory; and create effective product displays.
