Opening its Pittsburgh location in August 2022 on Forbes Avenue (in the event venue), Café Momentum’s mission is to transform young lives by equipping our community’s most at-risk youth with life skills, education and employment opportunities to help them achieve their full potential. Café Momentum strives to teach our country’s youth that it is possible to break the cycle of incarceration and violence that many of our youth have faced. We focus on creating environments for youth, ages 15-19, where they can gain self-confidence and learn marketable skills to ensure a more successful future.
Why This Is Important
According to information from the Pittsburgh Foundation, in 2019, 2,259 young people were referred to the juvenile justice system in Allegheny County from local schools, law enforcement, juvenile probation and parents. Reflecting national levels, nearly 70% of young people involved in Allegheny County's juvenile justice system are Black.
Working in coordination with Allegheny County Juvenile and Family Division, Café Momentum provides a transformative experience through a 12-month paid internship program for justice-involved youth. Throughout the internship, interns are connected with case managers to address basic urgent needs, establish a baseline of stability in their lives and set personal goals. The interns work their way through all areas of the restaurant, learning legal employment, social skills and life skills. After 12 months, successful interns are able to graduate from the program and are placed in a job with a community partner. These youth, who the juvenile justice system has referred to as “throw-aways” are now employed, tax-paying, wholly contributing members of society.
