JOBS 180 is thrilled to offer its first apprenticeship at CAFE 180 to Kiyara.

Kiyara comes to JOBS 180 through our partnership with the Denver Public Schools – Family and Community Engagement team. Originally from Gary, Indiana, Kiyara has a dream to own and operate a vegetarian-themed food truck, and she is diving right in at CAFE 180.

Like our apprenticeship at GoodTurn Cycles, the CAFE 180 apprenticeship offers a three-month paid work experience in which apprentices receive training in specific career field. At the cafe, Kiyara will gain hands-on experience preparing orders, creating delicious made-from-scratch soups and pizza crusts, serving customers, and learning what it takes to succeed in a professional restaurant environment.

In addition to gaining job skills, JOBS 180 apprentices also receive individualized attention and investment from our professional staff. We assist our apprentices in goal-setting, professional development, and establishing career readiness traits that are needed in almost any profession.

Come visit and cheer on Kiyara at CAFE 180! We’re open Monday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
