Chef Mentors

Chef Mentors Are Community Heros

Since 2012, Bay Area chef mentors have helped dozens of interns secure culinary jobs. In exchange for labor, chefs provide interns with culinary and soft skills. By volunteering their time and resources Sprouts’ mentor chefs are changing lives within their community.

Background

The Sprouts CIT Program gives back. I really didn’t have that growing up, so I wanted to make sure that once I had my own place, I could do that for someone else.
