The Dons Net Café is a student-run social entrepreneurial business located on the historic campus of Santa Barbara High School offered through the Regional Occupational Program. We have an amazing Economics teacher, Mr. Chris Morales, of Montecito Bank and follow the teachings of Junior Achievement.
The DNC represents a 20-year commitment to inspire students to create positive social and environmental change through ethical commerce and service-learning. We represent these activities through our participation in Virtual Enterprise, VITA, Roots and Shoots, and Service Learning. All profits benefit employees and associated projects 100%.
The Dons Net Café's mission is to educate and empower both youth and community to create change that is both beneficial to society and to the environment while running a profitable social entrepreneurial business. We just want to "Do Some Good in the World".
The Dons Net Café is a successful learning environment and a profitable business at Santa Barbara High School-ROP/CTE that is recognized locally, nationally and internationally for our work. We owe this to our SCORE counselors who guided us through the challenging and rewarding world of entrepreneurship.
