Café Clarkston is an employment assistance center and internet café designed especially for our English-as-a-Second-Language community. Here, refugees and new immigrants develop job and life skills while expanding and deepening their social and professional networks.
The Cafe equips refugees to find employment opportunities, create resumes, receive basic job skills training, and learn computer skills. We work in partnership with Clarkston International Bible Church, who hosts our Cafe and provides us with broadband internet.
