Old Skool Cafe is Expanding!


Old Skool's story started in Santa Barbara...

And now we're coming back home!

We are thrilled to announce that we have a an opportunity to bring OSC's unique blend of jobs, community, and purpose to Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara is where our founder Teresa Goines first served in law enforcement. She was given the vision for Old Skool Cafe by the young men at Los Prietos Boys Camp and on the beaches of Goleta. We love the young people of Santa Barbara and look forward to serving up our delicious brand of soul food and live music. Santa Barbara, get ready to come hungry and leave inspired. 

For over ten years, Old Skool Cafe has employed more than 300 previously incarcerated and at-risk young people in every aspect of the hospitality industry. 

We need your help to bring this life-changing program to the Central Coast!

Coming Fall 2017.
