Our Mission

We aim to transform young lives by equipping Nashville’s justice-involved youth with life skills, education and employment opportunities to help them achieve their full potential. In building Café Momentum, our primary goal is to build a sustainable model that provides justice-impacted youth (ages 15-19) with the holistic support they need to TRULY THRIVE.

Through internships, we are training and providing justice-involved youth with life skills, social skills and opportunities. 

All participants complete the program with a ServSafe® certificate which opens up a world of employment possibilities in the restaurant industry.
