The Pacific Autism Family Network (PAFN) is a Centre of Excellence and network of supports for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families across the province.


The Pacific Autism Family Network Centre in Richmond is looking for a full time Cafe Barista / Supervisor for our 'Paper Planes Cafe' coffee shop, which is a newly developed multi-venture social enterprise facility.

The Cafe Barista will be responsible for ensuring efficient and effective café operations, keeping track of finances, scheduling, and ensuring sufficient stock of items and supplies.

The Cafe Barista would help provide this occasional training to these individuals in the Café, with some supervision and guidance from our adult program directors.

This is a great opportunity for a responsible person with good coffee shop experience, who is looking for a full time position with daytime hours, is a self-starter who enjoys working independently, and wants to also gain experience working with people with ASD and related disorders.
