We believe hospitality can transform lives

Our Approach

Scarf trainees are amazing, resilient young people who have faced barriers to employment but haven’t given up. They’re keen to learn, keen to bust into an industry that they know can change their lives. Scarf’s approach to training is simple: real knowledge and real experience gets real jobs.

The Scarf Story

At Scarf, we transform the lives of young people seeking protection, and those from refugee and migrant backgrounds, by getting them into work while adding flavour and heart to the Melbourne hospitality industry. Whilst volunteering with the refugee community in 2009 - 2010, Scarf co-founders Hannah Colman and Jess Moran observed firsthand how hard it can be for newly arrived young people to find jobs, despite having a great attitude and a willingness to take on anything!
