June 2023 Update

Cafe brunswick
One Mission, One Name In July, the names of two of our beloved cafes changed. Names may have changed, but our mission has not; it is stronger than ever. Both cafes will continue serving a delicious cafe experience with a side serving of social change. And provide a venue for young people in our program to develop workplace skills and confidence.
Tax deductible donations
We appreciate your support. We can’t support the young people in our program without your support. Thank you for your generosity and belief in our programs. Our EOFY campaign has raised funds to enable more young people to work toward an independent future. Tax-deductible donations are welcomed any time of the year.
Youth Advisory Program. The beginning of this year saw the emergence of a new pathway program, Voices For Change. A youth advisory program engaging and learning from the lived experience of young people to provide invaluable feedback and recommendations on youth programs and practical work experience for the young people involved that can open opportunities in the community sector. For the inaugural program, we engaged the group to review and provide recommendations for For Change Co.
Sharing Our Mission We’ve been having a blast at The Rising Festival with our Crêpes For Change food truck! It’s been a great experience serving our delicious crêpes on these cool Melbourne nights. We’ve met so many amazing people and are so grateful for the opportunity to appear on The Today Show – sharing our mission and inviting people down to the festival.
Earlier in June, our Middle Park cafe was the venue for an interview with Carla Purcell, CEO of Yarra Trams, conducted by The Age newspaper.
Later in the month, our cafe and delicious food were featured in the article alongside the interview. It’s always exciting to see our cafes highlighted in the media.
