The Spring Cafe’s Mission (beyond serving great coffee and excellent food)
The Spring Cafe is a place where you can meet your international neighbors and learn about global cultures. We make our coffee shop a classroom, by employing refugees and providing training programs designed to prepare them to enter the customer service industry. The Spring Cafe was founded by Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning, a non-profit serving Denver’s immigrant and refugee community.

Can you imagine moving to a new country, where you have to learn a different language, and try to find a job all in a matter of months? The Spring Cafe works with refugees who have a desire to work in the customer service industry by offering hands-on training and English practice behind the register. Not only do they have to learn English, but they have to learn the peculiar language of customer service! We find that they are extremely fast learners and highly motivated.
Indeed refugees have A LOT to learn when starting a new life here, but The Spring Cafe also recognizes that Denver has A LOT to learn from it’s refugee community! By welcoming refugees and immigrants with open arms and curiosity, Denver will become a richer, culturally colorful community. Meet your global neighbors and learn more about the refugee community living just around the corner!
