Old Skool Cafe (OSC) is a faith-based, youth-run fine dining supper club in San Francisco with a view to providing career opportunities and a supportive environment to at-risk, previously incarcerated and foster care young people aged 16 to 22. The restaurant boasts a 1940s-theme, provides intensive mentoring, personal and professional development, as well as providing paid youth apprenticeships for at-risk youth likely having trouble finding comparable employment.

Acting as chefs, waiters and entertainers, the faith-based program is said to specifically designed to offering positive, solid alternatives to a life of poverty and crime. The Old Skool Cafe program also has a goal of connecting with other local organizations, businesses and churches to create a "web of support" for young people.
