We reach out to the community to develop partnerships that better serve our students.
Community partners are local businesses that support the refugee resettlement program by providing job shadow sites for refugees who have completed employment training at Emily’s Coffee and Emily Griffith Technical College.
Community partners offer refugees a chance to gain on-the-job experience in an American work environment so that these individuals can acquire jobs and support their families. Being a community partner is also a great way to support diversity in the workplace.

Keeping it Local
At Emily’s Coffee, we believe in the importance of utilizing resources within the community. Here are just a few examples of how we thrive through support from local businesses and partners:
- Our coffee beans are roasted locally by Kaladi Coffee.
- Our aprons were sewn by refugee women in a sewing project based out of the African Community Center of Denver.
- The embroidery for our aprons was completed by the Fashion Design program at EGTC.
- Our pastries are baked on site by our Culinary program at EGTC.
- Our menu board was constructed by our Welding program at EGTC.
