BASIC COOKING SKILLS
Our Culinary Arts Training is a ten-week certificate program. Upon successfully completing the program, the students will receive a certificate of completion as well as a food handler's certificate. Training will take place at a designated rental kitchen Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Monday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for ten consecutive weeks. Training will consist of classroom (lecture, assigned reading, test and a final exam), as well as lab (food preparation) experience. Students will be referred by Juvenile Justice and the Department of Family and Children's Services.
We provide temporary housing as part of the program to our students while in training. We purchase three or four bedroom foreclosed homes, renovate them and give our students a place to stay. Each person has their own rooms and shares the common areas such as the kitchen, living room and bathroom. The students must obtain employment after successfully completing the program. We charge the students a reasonable amount of rent. WE put this money into a savings account and present them a check upon leaving the program as a down payment on a home, a down payment on an apartment, or a down payment on a car.
We will award scholarships to all students who successfully complete the program, write a 500-word essay and complete an application. The amount of the scholarships will be determined by the tuition of the chosen college. All students must maintain a B average to continue to receive scholarship funds. The Money will be paid directly to the school of choice.
The recipient must be a United states Citizen
Scholarships are for all culinary school related expenses.
