A Partnership for Success: UrbanLife Cafe + Garden @ the YMCA

We are thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with the Copley-Price YMCA and our UrbanLife Tables culinary program. This July, UrbanLife will launch a full-service cafe, offering quality coffee and healthy food options to the thousands of people that visit the Y daily. 

UrbanLife's commitment to developing young neighborhood leaders paired with the Y's vision for healthy youth and families is a perfect partnership!

The cafe will serve as a base of operations for workforce training and development for youth, giving them real-time work experience serving customers, preparing healthy food, and helping to operate a successful small business. 

UrbanLife has also been awarded a Community Development Block Grant from the City of San Diego to create a rooftop learning garden at the Copley-Price Y, expanding the programs of UrbanLife Farms and engaging the 500+ youth that are involved at the YMCA. 

We are so excited about this new partnership with the Copley-Price YMCA, and the ways it can expand UrbanLife's ability to offer training, job skills, and a supportive environment for youth in City Heights and Southeastern San Diego!
