About Us

Cultural Café locates inside of 105 Gibson Community Center (105 Gibson Drive, Markham). It is part of the Joy Beyond Vision Community (JBVC) vocational training program. Cultural Café provides unique and meaningful employment combined with vocational training opportunities for those who live with visual impairment!

Our mission is to help Visually Impaired People (VIP):

  • Increase Confidence and Self-Worth
  • Develop friendships
  • Feel they are productive citizens, contributing to their community

Cultural Café will do:

  • Hands-on experience in food preparation, customer service and business management;
  • A supportive working and learning environment where visually impaired workers and sighted volunteers can work collaboratively;
  • Community awareness of the skills and work potential of VIP;
  • community networking that invites, encourages, re-connects and supports VIP who live in isolation, to participate in their community;
  • A strong message to potential employers demonstrating that hiring VIP will enrich their workplace and that barriers can be overcome!
