Social Engine Kitchen 

Giving vulnerable young people the confidence, courage and opportunities to create a better future for themselves. 

Social Engine Kitchen assists young people to enter the workforce through paid work experience and gain the skills needed to secure real jobs in the hospitality sector. We are passionate about seeing young people who are interested in the hospitality and cafe industry given the necessary knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

We operate four cafeterias: one at the Metro Tunnel North Melbourne worksite, Swinburne Uni (Croydon and Wantirna) and Werribee.

With every sip of our specialty coffee or order from our menu, you’re giving an opportunity for young people to learn the skills they need to thrive. You’re not just enjoying delicious food, you’re empowering futures.

Social Engine Kitchen “gives young people a second chance to break the disengaging cycle they live in, believe in their potential, make positive changes, and start a new life.”  Paul Coory, Head of Operations: Retail and Catering

Social Engine Kitchen, where great baristas are trained, and exceptional coffee is served.
