Old Skool Cafe


No one wakes up and decides they want to join a gang, sell drugs or make poor choices that will begin a lifetime of trouble. Sometimes, these individuals are simply suffocating as the world around them constricts and squeezes all the hope out of the room. Hopelessness can kill dignity and bury it somewhere in the midst of bad choices and incarceration.

When Teresa Goines, founder of Old Skool Cafe, first began asking young people what they needed in order to leave the gangs, she repeatedly heard the same answers: Jobs. Purpose. A Sense of Family.

What started out as a vision for a place that would address these needs has become a reality in the form of Old Skool Cafe, a dinner and entertainment venue where youth are employed in all aspects of the enterprise. Learning to be hosts, servers, chefs, and entertainers offers a solution for addressing their basic needs and provides a place of restoration and hope, breaking the cycle of poverty and incarceration.

Old Skool Cafe gives youth a second chance at a better future, providing hope, love, and real-world skills.

Come hungry. Leave inspired.
