AHA MEDIA filmed at W2 Cafe info meeting in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Are you a DTES resident with an interest in culture, journalism, media arts, social justice or coffee? Do you have a background working with customer service, as an artist, or have an active interest in W2? Our new facility, W2 Media Cafe, is hiring baristas!

W2 is working with Building Opportunities with Business (BOB) to help us organise potential crew for our new bistro cafe that will operate as a economic generator for W2’s media arts centre operations. If you are interested in this opportunity, come to our barista training information night onWednesday April 27th from 4-6pm. The session will be held at our W2 Media Cafe construction site at #250-111 West Hastings.

The session will include a presentation about the community work W2 does, as well as information about the barista positions. Please bring your resume and be prepared for a short screening interview.

Successful candidates will be selected for a week-long training session put on by W2, BOB, and Salt Spring Coffee Co. that will include the opportunity to get certified in Foodsafe and Serving it Right, plus learn about Salt Spring Coffee Co’s training modules, and W2’s crossmedia and community service vision.

BOB is supporting W2 Media Cafe to provide the barista information and training sessions through their BusinessLinks program. W2 is committed to hiring inner-city residents and Aboriginal women to staff our inner-city social enterprise.

If you have any questions, please contact W2’s office at 604-689-9896 or Lani Johnson at BOB 778-328-7674 or lani.johnson@bobics.org.
