Our biggest need is to have skilled youth workers on the ground connecting with the young people we work with. 


For just $5 per week (the price of a regular café-style coffee), you can help to fulfill that need by directly supporting a youth worker for an hour of youth mentoring per month.


It's super easy to sign up, and as a gift from us you'll receive your very own keep-cup.


Check out our kickstart merch and represent us whenever you like.

Kickstart Coffee and Youth tshirts and hoodies now available.
