This spring, social enterprise Scarf has partnered with Garden State Hotel to present their latest dinner series, designed to help young people seeking protection and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds get a start in the hospitality industry.
With the support of experienced hospitality mentors, young Scarf trainees will run the Tuesday evening sessions from 1 October until the 26 November, offering a two-course set menu at $45 per head.
Scarf trainees are resilient young people seeking protection and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds who’ve faced barriers to employment. Throughout their 10 weeks at Scarf, they’ll be trained in a range of hospitality and other job readiness skills, preparing them for future work in hospitality or other customer-service industries. During a season of Scarf Dinners, trainees are paid Restaurant Industry Award wages* to put their newly learned skills to the test in real, busy dinner services in awesome Melbourne venues.
