Our programs rely on the close engagement of a vibrant network of alumni. Our alumni work with current students to provide education, coaching, and leadership opportunities within the culinary industry.

Future Chefs alumni have inspiring stories. Many of them give back to the program by volunteering at local events and becoming peer leaders for the incoming cohort of young Future Chefs. Meet the alumni that inspire us everyday.



“I think the most rewarding thing as an Alumni is seeing the trust youth give you. I teach them that it’s important to come in on time, and how to deal with conflicts. As these challenges happen, the students are able to handle it. I was in their shoes, and I want them looking forward.”



“At Future Chefs, I was constantly learning how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and, ultimately, this empowered me. This program unlocked my inner confidence.”



“You can come from humble beginnings and still be able to work in a kitchen with or without going to college.”
