We love this resilient farming community! As soon as we moved here, we started looking for a cheap, fixer upper building. We realized immediately there was a need for a centralized gathering spot for our local youth. Our school district covers a 550 square mile radius. Most of our student population ride a bus home and are unable to get back into town (for sporting events, dances, theater productions etc.) because they do not have a car or are too young to drive. We saw all the kids hanging out in parking lots and in the street. We knew there had to be a solution to this problem. With my background in coffee/management and our love for youth, the dream was born. Irish Den would be a safe, fun place for kids to hang out. We also set out to teach the kids valuable job skills that will serve them later in life. Our student internship programs are doing just that. We love providing a gathering place for our local teens and serving the kids in our community!
Our Main Objectives:
- Creating a safe, fun place for the youth to hang out together after school.
- Sponsor events like: 5th Quarters, Gaming Tournaments, Karaoke, Popcorn & Movie Nights, Trivia, Game Nights etc.
- Employment training opportunities for student interns.
- Internet services to complete homework & tutors after school.
