Join Chicago Beyond’s Founder and CEO, Liz Dozier, for an experiential dinner in community that demonstrates Chicago Beyond’s partnership model in action. Old Skool Cafe is a workforce development social enterprise. Through its youth-run jazz supper club, young people who have experienced inequitable systems including incarceration and foster-care, receive training, jobs, mentorship, access to wrap-around services, and a healthy community that champions their success. Founded by former juvenile corrections officer Teresa Goines, Old Skool Cafe has served over 700 young people in San Francisco. With economic empowerment and healthy support, Old Skool Cafe youth are breaking the cycles of poverty, incarceration, and violence.
