Program areas at Homeboy Industries

Social enterpriseshomeboy bakery - trainees at our oldest social enterprise business learn all aspects of baking, from ordering supplies to perating a pastry machine to interacting with customers. We sell artisan breads, pastries, and cakes at our headquarters and farmers' markets around los angeles, as well as to local restaurants. Homeboy bakery was the organization's original mission business, founded in 1994, where former rivals worked side by side as scratch bakers located in an 80-year old building, the bakery suffered an electrical fire in 1999. In 2005, Homeboy hired several young men to prepare them to become leaders in the new bakery. These bakers attended classes at los angeles trade tech and interned at a local bakery, readying themselves to reopen the bakery in 2007 located in the new Homeboy facility. Homeboy bakery reopened its doors to the public on october 2, 2007, in a modern, well-equipped home under the guidance of master baker alvaro ocequeda. The lead bakers work alongside youth hired to take their first steps in the bakery world.homegirl cafe is a female - centered space where trainees can build self-esteem as well as job skills. By working alongside other wopmen, some of whom are from "enemy" gangs, homegirl cafe trainees begin to see each other as allies. Working as bussers, servers, line cooks, and sous chefs, they serve fresh mexican-fushion breakfasts and lunches in a fast-paced environment.
