Mission

FUTURE CHEFS prepares urban teens for quality work and life after high school by providing early employment and education opportunities in the restaurant industry, transferable skills training, and ongoing coaching and support

We believe transitioning into adulthood can be challenging for young people and are here to help create pathways into adult work that are both personally fulfilling and economically sustainable for each individual participant.
