Become a Mentor

Mentoring Changes 2 Lives

For the first time, Future Chefs is piloting a group mentoring program called ‘Food is my First Language’, where adults and youth will cook and share meals together. These dinners will provide students with the opportunity to learn the skills they need to navigate socially and professionally in the adult world, while making them feel cared for, supported, and nourished.

To participate in our program you do not need previous culinary experience or be a whiz in the kitchen. To mentor a Future Chef the most important skill you can have is commitment and enthusiasm for healthy and supportive adult/youth relationships. A healthy appetite doesn’t hurt either.
