The GW Patriot Coffee Cart – Training and Growth
The students from Career Discovery through Career Advancement visited the Prodigy Coffee Shop on October 24 and experienced the world of coffee, guided by apprentices with various levels of experience. All the student participants were very engaged in the stories of the apprentices and the history of the Prodigy program.
The very next day, the students implemented the skills they developed at Prodigy with the Patriot Coffee Cart service to students in the Lobby. The PCC serves students coffee, green tea, chai tea, and hot chocolate (with all the trimmings) every Thursday morning from 8:35am to 9:00am in the North Lobby. Not only do the Career Discovery students gain valuable work skills, they are also raising money to provide free bus passes each month to students who cannot afford to buy them!
The goal of the Patriot Coffee Cart is to find a permanent location in the building, allowing the Career Discovery students to continue making a positive impact on the culture of George Washington. We hope to achieve this goal in the not too distant future! Thanks to all for their support.
