Ground Level Cafe is a social enterprise providing marketable skills and training to at-risk and street-involved youth located in Toronto. An initiative of Ground Level Ventures, the cafe specifically hires young people without the skills necessary to attain substantial, sustainable employment.
Located in the Parkdale neighborhood, the Ground Level Cafe only uses fair trade certified coffee, as per Ground Level Youth Ventures policy. The cafe utilizes innovative models of peer mentoring and encourages healthy lifestyle choices, as well as enlists the help of resource people and skilled volunteers to provide guidance around personal budgeting, time management, housing concerns and resume-building.
