Empowering survivors to unapologetically take flight
About the Program
Brazen Table is a holistic culinary training program that provides tangible skills and experiences to survivors of human trafficking to enable them to find worthwhile and sustaining employment as they rebuild their lives.
Finding and maintaining life-giving employment after years of abuse not only provides for the financial needs of survivors, but also serves as a means to independence and self agency so crucial to their overall healing and ability to flourish. With a well-trained staff, deep ties to the anti-trafficking community and knowledge of the food and hospitality industry, A 2nd Cup is working to fill the gaps in education and experience.
Empower survivors of human trafficking to reclaim their personal identities and their futures while training to thrive in the hospitality industry and beyond.
We work with small groups of students to ensure we are able to support the varying needs and challenges of each participant.
