Build-Outs Of Summer: Refuge Coffee Company, Clarkston, GA @refugecoffeeco

Many people arrive here without job skills for US market and end up in dead-end employment, making a living but not really able to make a life for themselves and their families. We’re trying to be a part of breaking that cycle. We’re hiring refugees to work as baristas on the truck, make a decent wage, but also take part in a holistic classroom-based job training program that helps identify their individual goals and work towards them. Endgame is plugging our trainees into growth-oriented jobs in their chosen industry. Our first two trainees are from Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia, so we’ve got some coffee-producing countries represented on board!
