This initiative is run by lead volunteers who run the space. There is also a group of volunteer young people who form a Youth Committee that decide on the vision and direction of the Da Cafe.

Out Youth Committee and lead volunteers are trained and supported through each event. they will gain new skills and improve their own personal development.
