Together, we can support young people in gaining the tools they need to enter the world with strength and independence.

The young people enrolled in our Customer Service in Culinary Training program have always faced challenges. Poverty, housing instability, food access, job security…the pandemic has only magnified these challenges. And even so, our young people continue to seek opportunities to grow and reach their goals with resilience and commitment.

After weeks of personal and professional development through virtual learning, classroom workshops, and primarily hands-on training in The Kitchen, we will recognize and celebrate our current students’ accomplishments at their promotion ceremony today.

As they prepare to move on to their internships, they remain dedicated to building on their skills so that they are ready to seize opportunities and reach a financially stable life. Here are a few photos of their time with us.
