Chef Training Program

THE MISSION

Equipping youth to rise from hardship through culinary training and job placement.

Background

SPROUTS APPROACH

Youth at Sprouts are paired with a chef mentor and wraparound program to develop the vocational 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. Meet the youth awaiting sponsorship >

STRATEGY

Life Success Programs

All applicants enroll with life success program partners that offer services such as housing assistance, academic support, life skills building, psychiatric support, and transportation 

Restaurant Internships

Youth are carefully placed with mentor chefs and restaurants that match their individual needs. In return for labor, mentor chefs teach youth everything they need to thrive in the restaurant industry. Kitchen teams transform into mentorship families, supporting the youth on their personal journey to success. 

Financial Workshops

We partner with financial experts to teach interns crucial money management skills such as budgeting, setting up a bank accounting, and safe credit card use.
