Paul, Brooke and Unice practise their hospitality skills with Frankston City Council community development officer Justin Smith, centre, and Cr Liam Hughes, right.

An innovative hospitality training program run through Frankie’s Cafe at the Frankston South Community and Recreation Centre continues to serve up hope and prospective career paths for young people. Supported by Frankston City Council, the program targets young people aged 15-24 who are either unemployed or not engaged in education or training.

Sixty-five people have taken part in the program since Frankie’s Cafe began hosting the Cafe Creations course in October 2018, and 25 young people will take part this year.

Brooke, 23, said she was enjoying learning new skills, adding: “I like that it is a space where like-minded young people are learning new skills from the supportive teacher.”

Jasmine, 21, said: “Frankie’s Cafe has been heaps of fun and we are learning lots. We have a great teacher teaching us knife skills, cooking in a commercial kitchen, as well as using a commercial coffee machine. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the program and all the opportunities it will open up.”

Unice, 19, said: “I’m hoping to find a job in hospitality through the help of this program. It’s interesting and fun learning all these valuable skills.”

Cr Liam Hughes said the program enabled young people to develop self-esteem while they gained pre-accredited training qualifications in the hospitality industry. “The program takes vocational learning out of school and into the local community with a curriculum that is flexible and creative,” Cr Hughes said. “Students gain skills and experience with hands-on learning in a simulated hospitality environment.”
