YES CHEF is a cooking program for newcomer youth aged 16-30, who want to learn more about food production. We offer a 6-week in-person program where youth are able to learn and develop new skills. Youth also get help with employment preparation and settlement support, provided both 1:1 and in groups. Our cooking sessions are inspired by cuisines all over the world to give participants a broad introduction to cooking and baking. YES CHEF! collaborates with local food industry professionals to give youth extra inspiration and insight into the food industry, and make connections for potential employment. The goal is to give youth a foundation in food production that they can build on, gaining more skills and experience after completing the program. Participating in YES CHEF! is also a great way to meet new people who share the same passion for food, speak English, and have fun.
