Teens own this cafe. They don’t only attend it – they run it. By joining the Youth Leadership Team (YLT), you get to voice your opinion about what the cafe looks like, sounds like, feels like, and even what food is served. The YLT is a great place to find friends while developing leadership skills that look nice on a resume. Find out more about the YLT here.

Upcoming Events: The Tangled Jungle Path to Primatology with Jennifer Rehg


Have you ever been told that you are “just monkeying around?” What do monkeys act like anyway, and how do scientists study them in the wild? Take a tour down the “tangled jungle path” to primatology and the study of non-human primates in South America in this cafe. Learn what it is like to be out in the field studying tamarins, marmosets, muriquis, and more with Dr. Jennifer Rehg, a primatologist at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. You might even find yourself acting like a monkey, too!
