If you like cooking and need a job, Connecting for Children and Families (CCF) is looking for you as it recruits for the Fall Culinary Arts program.
The workforce training is funded through a $168,366 Innovative Partnership grant from the Governor’s Workforce Board creating a formal collaboration called the Culinary Arts Collaborative of Northern Rhode Island.
The training consists of: 12 weeks of classroom instruction, Monday-Friday, with anticipated start dates in September. Participants will acquire work-readiness preparation; occupational skills in culinary arts; four industry recognized credentials; on-the-job experience through internships; and a strong connection to a career pathway with individualized job development and placement.
All participants must be at least 18-years-old (valid identification); unemployed or underemployed and looking to improve skills and find a job in food services; and have legal documents indicating ability to work in the US (birth certificate or passport).
“Providing this program prepares adults with the technical and job readiness skills that have been identified by employers as basic requirements they look for in a potential employee," said CCF Executive Director Terese Curtin, "This training is the first step in assisting adults with the skills, confidence, and financial stability during these challenging economic times.”
Class size is limited. Interested individuals should contact Heidi Collins, Director—Center for Financial Success at 766-3384 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out when an information session is being held.
