Youth Mentorship
Our cafe is staffed primarily by volunteers, with a special emphasis teenagers. Through our team-based approach, youth receive job training, leadership development, and mentoring in the context of a cafe and catering services. We are looking for teens who are 13 and older, as well as the "young-at-heart" who are interested in volunteering and mentoring youth in an active coffeehouse setting.
What Does 'Aviv' Mean?
Aviv is a Hebrew word which comes from the root word Av, meaning the fresh, green shoot that comes up in spring. Aviv is associated with the barley harvest of spring in Israel. Thus, Aviv is about both the new & the mature plant--new & mature believers; new & mature creative works; new & mature ministries & businesses-- all working together to strengthen our church & our community.
