Apply To Be A CIT Intern
Sprouts Chef-in-Training program offers young adults that haven’t had it easy the opportunity to change their lives by training them to become chefs. For 6 months, they are paid to learn everything they need to know to land a sustainable job in the modern restaurant industry. They train directly alongside a local mentor chef and receive job application coaching from Wells Fargo.
Since 2012, we have had 32 apprentices enter into our program. 72% of graduated Chefs-in-Training interns have landed jobs in establishments such as Locanda, 25 Lusk, Whole Foods, and Farley Cafe. Our program is made possible by the donations of community members and local businesses. Watch our video to learn more!
