One Church’s Pro Baristas – Ian’s story

Hugely successful barista coffee courses for homeless and others in need

tGF has donated a further £10,000 to One Church’s Pro Baristas project bringing our financial support to date to £115,000. This is to continue the growth of their hugely successful barista coffee courses for homeless and others in need who are trying to get into employment.

 

David Steell, Minister and Team Leader of the One Church wrote:

The Goodall Foundation supported Pro Baristas in its earliest stage and through a crucial season of growth as we transitioned into a significant regional training provider with a national profile and robust support mechanisms in place to better help people into work. The funding allowed us to take on staff, enhance our mentorship of unemployed people, increase our uptake and add an innovative curriculum for tracking and improving individual “soft skills” to help them become more work ready. This financial support has therefore translated into impacting hundreds of young people’s lives, giving them more than just a job but also self-confidence, worth and a more hopeful future. Pro Barista’s would not be all that it is now without this investment, and we are forever grateful.
