Culinary Arts Program

Miguel, Michelle, and Walter

The Culinary Arts Program is a 6-month apprenticeship with 1,000 hours of on-the-job training provided through American Culinary Federation (ACF). This program is meant to help New Life Fellowship (NLF) program participants expand their vocational horizons as an opportunity to earn careers in the food service industry.

By providing culinary training as a part of NLF work therapy, program participants will receive knowledge and skills that can be foundational for a future career. Such skills include running a kitchen, but also kitchen basics:

  • Knife skills
  • Reading recipes
  • Hot kitchen/cold kitchen
  • Measurements
  • Bulk cooking
  • Menu selection
“I want to go to college for a degree in either business management or hospitality, but I want to start slow, work in a restaurant and gain some experience, and eventually open up my own place.”
