CULINARY PROGRAM

Cooking is Cool!

The Culinary Program exposes teens to the incredible world of cooking - where they gain hands-on experience in the kitchen learning basic techniques and fun recipes that can be duplicated at home. 

In partnership with the Juvenile Welfare Board, this program gives youth the opportunity to be creative in the kitchen, understand the importance and value of nutritious meal prep and planning, and even grow their own fresh fruits and produce!

Program Benefits

CAREER EXPLORATION

The exposure to culinary arts inspires teens to explore possible careers in the hospitality or food industries.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

One component of this program is teaching teens about health and wellness through growing and maintaining their own produce gardens at the Club. Club Members plant, nourish, and later eat the delicious food grown by their very own hands. 

BUILDING LIFE SKILLS

Teens gain instruction about proper utensil handling, cooking techniques, prep and sanitation, and simple recipes that can be duplicated at home and beyond. These valuable skills help instill independence, discipline, and creativity.

SOMETHING JUST FOR TEENS

The Culinary Program is an opportunity for our teen population to interact with their own peer group while engaging in a fun activity. Teens work together in the kitchen testing recipes and preparing delicious meals that are served to the younger population in the Club.
