Our social enterprise cafes harness community goodwill towards social and economic sustainability and ethical business and invest profits to innovate and grow within a social justice framework - reaffirming our vision of young people being good-to-go into a very competitive job market.

Our cafes enable tangible, client-led goals that are life affirming and strengths-based.

Spanning across three cafes - one on the iconic Hosier Lane, another at Rosanna Station in the leafy north east and the third at the Alfred's Innovation & Education Hub - our social enterprise cafes empower young people to lead meaningful lives by providing hands-on skills development and mentoring from industry experts. Each trainee has a platform to build self-confidence, gain key employability skills and genuine work experience in a supportive and judgement free environment.

Our impact, so far...

Paying it forward

Customers have the opportunity to sprinkle kindness into someone else's day by purchasing a drink or snack for someone experiencing homelessness or accessing Youth Projects' homelessness services through our pay-it-forward initiatives at our cafes. This is an important element of our holistic, wrap around connection to our community health services.

Good2Go

Est. 2014

Good2Go oozes a quintessential, inner Melbourne vibe without the pretence, creating a quiet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of laneway busyness. The cafe is heavily influenced by the laneways it makes it’s home in, from pop art wall decor through to homely, pre-loved furnishings that makes each and every visitor feel at ease, and at home. 

Tucked away behind the counter, hides one of Melbourne’s best-kept op-shop gems, boasting an eclectic mix of pre-loved wears and vintage finds. Each item purchased at the op-shop goes back into supporting crucial services at Youth Projects.

The goodwill doesn't stop there.

Local institution, Reverence, donate 100% of our beans alongside the crew from Blake's Feast who donate freshly baked goods on the daily.
