More than 3,000 of Indonesia’s youth end up in prison each year. Those released often find it difficult to find jobs. Dian Sasmita started Gerobak Kopi Onjel, a program that provides youth with professional barista training and an internship in a coffee shop. Once their three-month internship ends, they move onto the second part of the program where they are given a cycle wagon that is a mobile coffee shop to go sell coffee at various events. The purpose of the program is to provide these juveniles with a chance to gain skills and a job after they are released as well as increase their confidence in their abilities to tackle difficult tasks.
