Ruthie’s Rolling Café and Café Momentum are now partners working to help change the lives of at-risk youth in Dallas. Ruthie’s provides employment and training to expand the professional experience of Café Momentum Fellows who have moved into the post internship phase of the program. Individuals will join the Ruthie’s team and serve on the food truck.
Café Momentum, a Dallas-based restaurant and culinary training facility, transforms young people’s lives by providing a positive environment in which at-risk youth—who have spent time in juvenile facilities—receive intensive culinary, job, and life skill training, as well as continued mentorship and support, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit restaurant, Café Momentum teaches critical skills that allow youth to apply what they have been taught in pre-release programs in a safe, real-world environment of nurturing accountability. By participating in our program, at-risk young men and women rotate through every aspect of the restaurant, from waiting tables to washing dishes, while working side-by-side with established chefs.
Most of our interns will obtain employment through the Café Momentum externship program. The fellowship at Ruthie’s will be for the interns who would like expanded training and personal growth once they have completed the program at Café Momentum.
We will still offer full-service catering options. From boxed lunches to full holiday parties, we are here to serve you and your guests! For grilled cheese catering, contact email@example.com. If interested in catering from Café Momentum, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fellows work their way through all areas of the restaurant, learning legal employment, social skills, and life skills. They complete financial literacy training, parenting classes, educational assistance, and career exploration. In addition to these skills, they have been through counseling on anger management, trauma recovery, fatherlessness, and abandonment depending on the individual’s specific needs.
It was fate for us to join forces as two organizations with this much love and dedication to helping the Dallas community. Through the mission of Café Momentum and the extension of the generosity Ruthie’s already gives to the Dallas community, together they will be a vehicle that will take the Café Momentum mission beyond its walls.
