District 88 Transition Program’s Perks & Possibilities Café hosts Grand Reopening

On Nov. 7, the District 88 Transition Program hosted a Grand Reopening for its Perks & Possibilities Café, located inside the Addison Public Library at 4 Friendship Plaza in Addison. District 88, Addison Trail and Willowbrook administrators attended the event to support the program (pictured above).

The café, which has been closed since 2020 because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, is now open!

When visiting the café, guests are greeted by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, snacks and juices lining the counters and – of course – friendly smiles. The café is run by students in the District 88 Transition Program (with the guidance of staff), which helps individuals ages 18 to 21 who have a variety of abilities learn life skills, obtain job training at local vocational sites in a community setting and transition to a life of independence after District 88.

Perks & Possibilities Café is open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The café is a result of collaboration and generosity provided by local intergovernmental agencies, businesses and donors.
