Mars Hill Cafe.


An initiative of Kevin's Mars Hill Cafe, the Mars Hill Espresso Carts aims to provide employment, job skills, life skills and mentoring to local youth and young adults in the Parramatta area. The goal of the project is to run a sustainable business that can fund more coffee cart projects with the same focus as well as helping to finance the activities of Mars Hill Cafe Inc.--the supervising organisation and founding project.

Kevin Crouse won Federal Government funding to launch the Mars Hill Espresso Carts. He has been able to employ three extra staff in 2010 and will have a further four staff positions and ten work experience positions available by 2012. The cafe won an award in 'Excellence in contributing to the community by a not-for-profit'.
