The Owl Café
The Owl Café opened in the summer of 2012 selling coffee and muffins from the foyer of the agency. Now it is a fully operational café selling homemade soups, sandwiches, treats, coffee, tea…providing training opportunities for people who want to enter the competitive job market and practice their skills in a fully supported environment.
Some individuals may choose to work alongside staff in the kitchen preparing and packaging the food for the café, others may choose to work in the café itself learning customer service skills and gaining retail sales experience.
Each of the programs offered by Y’s Owl Maclure use the café as a training opportunity to participate in the activities supported by the agency as well as learning and practicing useful skills to be contributing members of the community.
