Barista Instructor

Jennifer Schifano started as the CSET Instructor and Barista Trainer at YouthBuild in 2016.  She enjoys teaching students practical customer service skills to help them gain employment while they pursue post-secondary education or other personal goals.  At YouthBuild, she can often be found running around the YB Training Café with students, helping them make drinks and improve their customer service skills.  Jenn holds a Bachelor in English and a Bachelor in Spanish from Eastern University.  In 2015, she earned her Master of Fine Arts in Fiction from Fairfield University.  When she’s not at YouthBuild, she trains for marathons, writes stories, drinks a lot of coffee, and dances.
