Our culinary arts program for teens, the Chef Apprentice Program is a free program designed for high school students 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.
There are two choices for students: Monday classes at the Franklin Neighborhood Center, or Tuesday classes at the Westside Neighborhood Center.
