World Cafe Partnership Creates Thriving Student Business on School Campus

Our 2017 World Cafe event opened with the premiere of this video – a World Cafe success story featuring The CW22 and Green Magnet Elementary School. Inspired by a group of third graders, educators from Green Elementary came to World Cafe seeking support for a student-run coffee shop. At the event, they were connected with volunteers from The CW22, who immediately fell in love with the idea.

\”We\’ve just continued to have this really great, supportive relationship that has turned a single coffee pot into a thriving business here on our campus.\”

-Somer Alford | AIG Leader, Green Magnet Elementary School


World Cafe doesn\’t just introduce educators to members of the business community; it opens doors for long-term relationships between schools and organizations that ultimately benefit Wake County students. This video is the perfect example of the impact these relationships can have on a school:
