Junior Chef Culinary Classes
Healthy lives begin with healthy food and knowing how to prepare that food. We offer three streams of programming to support this ideal: Culinary Fundamentals, Culinary & Life Skills and Rainbow Culinary Connections.
Our Culinary programs support teens, young adults wanting greater independence or attending college or university, and youth who want to enter the hospitality industry for employment or post-secondary education.
Life Skills & Rainbow Connections also aim to enhance physical and mental health for those at risk of depression, anxiety or other mental health concerns, have learning exceptions, ADD/ADHD or high-functioning Autism, identify as LGBTQ2S+ or Non-binary, are ‘Out’ or on a journey of self-exploration.
