Toolkit for Hosting a Community Café

The Alaska Strengthening Families Program released a toolkit to highlight the benefits and provide a how-to for using community cafes as a tool to have meaningful discussions about domestic violence, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse. A Toolkit for Hosting a Community Café Series: On Choosing Respect and Ending Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Sexual Abuse opens with useful definitions, tips for hosting a community café, creating an ambiance, and example agendas.

The second half of the toolkit is an appendix, which offers tools to help get a group started. Some of these pieces include:

  • A sample invitation
  • A document on café etiquette
  • Sample poems
  • Additional café questions
