The Social Foundry is lead by a passionate team of hospitality professionals. Each day, SOFO staff deliver standout food, coffee & service, whilst also delivering hands-on training for local youth.

 

Many of these trainees face barriers to employment, either on a personal level or simply by nature of the area's high youth unemployment rate. 

Training at SOFO consists of immersive work skills practiced in front-of-house, kitchen and barista capacities. And after hours, the Social Foundry hosts Life Skills, a six module program designed to expand upon the cafe learning environment, including topics such as financial literacy, job-hunting skills & self. We also welcome adults of all ages to come volunteer, helping us deliver an inclusive & supportive training environment for our young people. 

THE Social Foundry is leading change for our local community, one young adult at a time. 

Our home is 86 Mollison Street, Kyneton where we not only serve up great food and coffee, but also host community. We hope to soon offer a space for community events, parties, weddings, community workshops and lots more. We’re creating an environment where everyone is welcome and everyone can make a difference. You’re invited to join us in this opportunity to build community and play a transforming part in the lives of young people with limited opportunities..
