CUPs Coffeehouse

Coffee and Catering With a Cause in Baltimore

CUPs Coffeehouse is dedicated to bringing you great coffee and food.  Through food and beverage sales we are committed to creating opportunities for local youth and to building community.  CUPs works directly with Project I CAN, a program of Fusion Partnerships, to provide hands on workforce development for disconnected youth living in Baltimore City. 

Our Mission

Project I CAN re-engages disconnected youth 16 to 24 years of age in Baltimore City in a year-long youth development and work readiness program that includes real-world work experience, enrichment classes, community service, and mentorship. Youth will develop short- and long-term goals, professional and leadership skills, and a sense of self-efficacy that will prepare them for future education and employment, reducing their risk for long-term poverty.

Project I CAN accepts youth interns from anywhere in Baltimore City but recruitment and community activities are focused on the neighborhoods surrounding CUPs Coffeehouse in East Baltimore, including Oliver and Middle East.
