Internship programs serve multiple purposes, providing benefits to both the schools and to our partnering agencies. The goal is to prepare students for successful careers in the culinary and hospitality industries. For our partners, the opportunity is to cultivate the future labor force for themselves as well as the industry at large.
Mentoring is one of the most effective ways to ensure student success – both in school and out. It is also a very rewarding activity for professionals; it serves as a reminder of the many things we’ve learned over time and tend to take for granted. One of the barriers that keep young people and particularly young people of color out of the food and hospitality industries is the lack of access to professionals and to appropriate networks. Mentoring helps remove this barrier.
The BCA works in conjunction with our partners to create educational/hands-on programs for those we support. If you are interested in providing internships and mentoring opportunities to help prepare the culinary/hospitality professionals of the future, please give us a call or visit our Volunteer Match page.
