Hope Cafes

Hope Cafes are a vital part of The Hope Vocational Academy. With two locations in Springfield, Illinois, these cafes provide on the job training for our Vocational students. Students, along with job coaches and the Cafe Manager, run the day to day activities of both Hope Cafes. They gain knowledge and experience in customer service, food preparation, baking, and preparing orders. We are preparing our students for competitive employment opportunities as adults in their communities and we are having fun while doing it! Stop in today, have a bite to eat, and watch our vocational program in action!
