About Old Skool Café:
Founded in 2004, Old Skool Café ("OSC") is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, faith based organization that offers programs and services to rehabilitate previously-incarcerated and at-risk youth by giving them the positive, relevant tools and training to open, operate and direct a youth-run supper club. OSC will provide, through collaborative partners, education and training in "life skills," including drug education, American history education, college planning, writing skills development, financial planning, spiritual and physical development, anger and stress management, fatherhood and motherhood education, personality and temperament development, civic awareness education, volunteer/service ethic development and professional development. OSC will provide youth with a safe environment to develop and better showcase their positive and constructive skills. Presently, OSC is in the process of securing a permanent home for its supper club.

About OSC's Founding:
The founding of OSC arose out of my sincere and intense belief that both individual and community responsibility and action is required to prevent a generation of young black and brown men from becoming the "prison generation." This is why I left my position at San Francisco Unified School District in 2005 and worked, unpaid, for the past year and a half to bring the promise of OSC into a reality.
