On Providing Professional Skills to At-risk Youth - A conversation with Teresa Goines

Fifteen years ago, Teresa Goines founded Old Skool Cafe a youth-run jazz supper club in San Francisco. On this episode, she tells me about her long-term vision to transform the cycle of incarceration and recidivism, at-risk youth feel trapped in, into a healthy life. Teresa also shares how the training at Old Skool Cafe provides career and life skills, plus employment experience to these young people.

 

Show Notes

At the end of the show, I ask all my guests the same set of questions to get a sneak preview into their favourite music or books. Here are the links to Teresa's answers. The song she often listens to is ‘You’re Gonna Be Ok’ by Jenn Johnson. One of her favourite books is The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. The music that particularly resonated with her at a specific time in her life is from Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. Her all-time favourite book that she absolutely recommends is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
