and with it the tourism season. This year was our busiest ever and our summer volunteers got a real taste of what it was like to work in a bustling coffee shop and deli. Countless lattes, smoothies, and sandwiches were made, served and consumed 😉
As the new school semester approaches we will be welcoming a whole new set of volunteers. The applications are in and the interviews have commenced.
Starting in October the volunteers will work through a series of trainings covering all parts of the cafe. The five areas of training are; Barista, Food Service, Customer Service, Kitchen and Back of the House / Marketing. They will get the chance to balance work, school and their social lives at Dragonfly. They will learn many new skills, possibly discover new interests and hopefully walk out of here in December ready to hit the streets and start looking for work.
