Students will leave with industry-approved qualifications, work experience, and have assistance finding a job in local cafés.
A spokesperson said: "By positioning our academies in areas of high deprivation, we want to give those furthest away from the job market the opportunities to develop a new craft and match them to vacancies in their local area."
The NGO is helping anyone aged between 18 and 60 actively seeking employment or on zero hours contracts with a right to work in the UK.
Applications have opened and anyone interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
