The YMCA of Greater Vancouver will be launching the YCafe Training program, designed to address the shortage of skilled workers.

This program will fully equip participants with the skillset required to excel in the food-and-beverage industry. Once running, partnered businesses will gain access to a steady flow of fully trained, motivated and ready-to-go workers. 

Check back later in 2022 for program updates.
