We want to introduce you to the life-change stories at DV8 so second chances begin happening everywhere.
This event allows you to experience those stories first-hand in the most efficient format. This immersive training experience was designed to show you how to use your operation (or organization) to generate multiple bottom lines through second-chance employment.
At DV8 Kitchen, we have experienced the power of second chances. Hiring those in the early stages of drug and alcohol addiction recovery who are ready to make a change in their life has proven to help people “deviate” from a life of addiction to a life of recovery.
Without employment opportunities, those with a history of addiction often don’t have the skills, tools, or hope to successfully recover from addiction and will continue the harmful cycle. At DV8 Kitchen Vocational Training Foundation Inc, we employ people with a past that includes addiction (and usually incarceration) and give them the tools and experience needed to equip them for gainful employment.
These tools include customer service, culinary skills, baking, and life skills to help them succeed on their road to recovery. Additionally, the DV8 Kitchen Vocational Training Foundation Inc. is on a mission to inspire, encourage, teach, and mentor other business leaders on how they can hire second chance employees in their community.
