Sam's Youth Engagement Program

The youth who volunteer at Sam's Place face some big barriers to employment, but in our kitchen, they find the mentorship, community and support they need to acquire meaningful employment.

Support Sam's Place Youth Engagement Program by coming for a delicious lunch.

Renovations at Sam's Place

Sam’s Place will be renovating the kitchen and front of house areas to better facilitate the training of youth volunteers. With these new renovations Sam’s Place capacity will be expanded, in training, café, catering and baking services.

Training youth in the kitchen will be enhanced with commercial equipment and adequate space to effectively prepare volunteers for employment in the food service industry.

Renovations will start at the beginning of November. Stay tuned for details about a grand reopening in January!

Sam’s Place will not be accepting new book donations from Sept 15th and through to the end of the renovation, as storage space is very limited.
