Our culinary arts program for teens, the Chef Apprentice Program, is a free program designed for students currently in the 10th through 12th grades at all Santa Barbara schools. It teaches students healthy nutritional and cooking skills they'll need as they look forward to living on their own after high school.
The program provides a full spectrum view of the culinary arts profession in a safe, nurturing, healthy, and fun environment for teens after their schooldays end.
Professional chefs teach students to use fresh fruit, vegetables, and meats as they learn about meal preparation. After each class, students are able to take home the meals they have prepared to share with their families.
Classes are held at two locations. The 18-week program begins in January of each year.
Monday Program 2016: Franklin Neighborhood Center
Tuesday Program 2016: Westside Neighborhood Center
