Our Mission

Café Momentum Pittsburgh is opening its brick-and-mortar restaurant and launching the full Momentum program in Q1 2023.

Café Momentum is an award-winning restaurant and culinary training facility. We aim to transform young lives by equipping Pittsburgh’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.

The Experience

Our restaurant is equal parts dining room and classroom: While our Interns are working on providing thoughtful dishes with top-notch service, they’re also learning that they can (and will) rise to whatever level of expectation is set for them. While you’re enjoying the results of their hard work and determination, you’re also sending them a message that you believe in them.

The Café Momentum experience proves that something as simple as breaking bread can change the lives of our community’s most marginalized youth.
