1951 Coffee Wins Grant, Expands Training Program

1951 Coffee Wins Grant, Expands Training Program

Started in 2015, 1951 Coffee has graduated 51 refugees, asylum seekers and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders in the San Francisco Bay Area. With this grant, Rachel and Doug hope to hold barista training classes at least once a month and graduate 85 baristas in the next year. However, 1951 Coffee baristas are already being positively affected by the grant. “We were able to see immediate effects of this grant, as the expansion of the barista training program has allowed us to offer promotions and growth within our café,” shares Rachel. “For example, our senior barista, Meg, was recently promoted to program instructor. This then opens up the opportunity for other staff to move into new roles. We look forward to continuing to build on our staff’s own development at 1951 Coffee.”
