Indianapolis-based nonprofit Second Helpings is relaunching its culinary job training program. Through the newly-formatted program, students and instructors will visit foodservice sites to shadow culinary professionals and gain skills that can be used for future employment.
The nonprofit says the program has a renewed focus on “durable skills,” which are skills that can be applied to any job, including financial literacy, goal setting, and time management. Students will also complete a three-week internship after they complete the first four modules.
“This summer we enlisted a community taskforce of chefs, employers, graduates, and other partners to respond to industry needs in the wake of the pandemic,” said Second Helpings Chief Executive Officer Linda Broadfoot. “The Culinary Job Training program is now much more flexible for students in today’s changing work environment.”
The program’s modules are focused around specific learning objectives, and students will develop skills and earn certifications from each module. They include a two-week life skills and career preparation module, a two-week kitchen preparation and two-week basic cookery module, and a one-week kitchen math and employment readiness module, as well as a three-week internship.
The restructured program now provides more flexibility, and the nonprofit says students who need to temporarily leave the program can return without having to restart the program from the beginning.
The nonprofit is hosting informational sessions about the program and interested participants are invited to attend. The sessions are being held Wednesday at 1 p.m. and Thursday at 10 a.m. at Second Helpings in Indianapolis.
Enrollment for the program is now open, and the next class will start October 3.
