Ten hours per week is dedicated to coaching students through career exploration, the job search process, resume writing and interviewing, and identifying employment opportunities well-suited for their needs, interests, and abilities. Students complete culinary stages (working a shift as a form of interview) with at least three different employers, and work at many different catering and community events during their time in the program. The goal is for them to add relevant experience to their resumes, network with potential employers, and gain first-hand knowledge of different work environments before selecting their permanent jobs. We also provide extensive job readiness and life skills training in the areas of conflict resolution, teamwork, accountability, and more, as well as access to wrap-around social services and community resources, to ensure students are ready to begin work upon the completion of our program.
Chronically unemployed or underemployed adults and at-risk young adults, and students with limited training and underdeveloped career skills who face significant barriers to stable employment
