STREAT is a social enterprise based in Melbourne, providing youth with a pathway from the street to a sustainable livelihood. Since its launch in 2010, it has worked to assist its trainees, teaching them life skills and creating employment opportunities in the hospitality industry for people aged 16 to 25.

This year, the organisation is building Home Streat Home at 66 Cromwell Street, Collingwood, which will comprise a caf, event space, youth training academy, artisan bakery and coffee roastery.

In order to help fund the build, Streat has commenced a crowdfunding campaign in the hope of raising $100,000, with Gandel Philanthropy offering to match the first $30,000 raised.

Streat ambassador and culinary icon, Jacques Reymond, has thrown his weight behind the cause, appearing in a video to promote the organisation and the hospitality training it provides to young, disadvantaged Australians.
