Equipping youth to rise from hardship through culinary training and job placement.
A Bay Area where all youth have access to economic opportunity and fulfilling career pathways.
Sprouts equips youth to rise from hardship through culinary training and job placement.
Youth are paired with a chef mentor and case manager to develop the skills needed to secure and maintain a culinary job. Graduates use these entry-level jobs to kickstart culinary careers, pay for education, or pursue new industries.
170,000+ Bay Area youth live in poverty. Tens of thousands more face hardship such as gang violence, homelessness, abuse, high school dropout, crime, and drugs.
See our Chef Training Program in action with a visit to one of our partner restaurants! Your reservations support job training for youth.
