BUILD-Recruited Coffeehouse Opens in East Baltimore

CUPs (Creating Unlimited Possibilities) Coffeehouse, the first of its kind in the East Baltimore community of Oliver, held its grand opening in the Oliver community. BUILD organized with its community development entity, Development Partners, to recruit CUPS and finance and redevelop the building. CUPS trains and mentors youth to help them gain technical and social skills for working in the restaurant and hospitality industry and provides leadership skills through opportunities to plan, organize, and implement Community Engagement Projects. Twenty positions in culinary training will go to BUILD's Turnaround Tuesday participants.
