1. Café Internship – The internship is about 18 months in length and is run alongside our Basic Leadership School (Certificate IV in Missions). The café internship is designed for those who have an interest in working in the café/coffee/hospitality industry – either as a ministry as a part of a church, a missions outreach or as a community-centered business. Training will be in the area of barista services, social media, business planning, hospitality, ministry training, etc. The internship runs alongside the BLS, where trainees learn Godly characteristics of leadership and ministry application. The BLS is an accredited course with Youth With A Mission. This internship is open to DTS graduates. 2. Coffee DTS – We run a coffee track on the MAD Discipleship Training School. This program runs for 6 months. The DTS develops an individual’s foundations in God and His word. We have training in Brisbane for 3 ½ months and then head overseas for a missions outreach for 2 months. During the training time in Brisbane, the group meets twice a week in their ‘track’ for training and equipping. It’s a good starting place to find out if you really have a passion for coffee and want to take that further into a career. However, due to the limited amount of time, barista skills will not be taught during the DTS. 3. Volunteer – We run a program called Mission Builders, for those who have not done a DTS yet, where you can volunteer for 1-3 months. You can request to serve primarily in the café. During this time you’ll be a part of a YWAM community, meet some great people, and serve within our ministry gaining some experience.
4. Full Time Café Staff - If you have done a DTS, you can join us as full time café staff for at least a year. During this time, you will receive on the job barista and hospitality training and be a part of our YWAM Brisbane Community.
