Kids Matter has developed a Coffee Barista Program integrated with local high schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth community. The program focuses on mentally and developmentally challenged high school students and aims to teach skill-sets that they can use to find work after education.
Our pilot Coffee Barista Program launched in 2017 at Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine High School. Work Transition Coordinators guide and mentor the participating students in the working environment and help students with developing certain skill-sets to succeed in the working field, including responsibility and accountability, structure and organization, and communication skills.
Kids Matter believes all kids need the opportunity for mentorship and guidance to develop the knowledge and confidence to succeed in the world.
At Kids Matter we believe in living and acting by faith and wisdom—not out of fear. We recognize that there is a lot of anxiety in the world right now, and for good reason. The COVID-19 outbreak is challenging each of us to modify our lifestyle and take extra steps to remain safe. Here we have staff members whose children’s schools have been temporarily closed, and like all of you we are committed to helping slow the spread of this illness. For this reason, our physical office space will have limited open hours until further notice. Thank you for your faithful support. Stay happy and healthy! 😊”
