Social Enterprise successfully creating jobs for homeless youth

http://www.streat.com.au/ STREAT is a social enterprise that provides homeless youth with the life-skills, work experience and training they require to start a career in the hospitality industry. Our Melbourne based cafes, catering and coffee roasting businesses provide the venues (and some of the funds) needed to support these amazing young people.

Social enterprises inspire me and the people running them, they see community and beyond their individual life. I aspire to start a social enterprise after meeting people like these.

It takes time to get enterprises up and running, however lots of story telling creates the flow of information to those with money and the inclination in invest.
