Fresh Soul is a social enterprise nonprofit soul food restaurant with a job training program for ages 14 to 18. We serve BBQ ribs, fried chicken, collard greens, red beans and rice, cornbread, fried green tomatoes, sweet tea, Kool-Aid, and more!
The Fresh Soul job training program runs for 12 weeks and covers topics such as kitchen training, kitchen etiquette, food handling skills, service, having a bank account and budgeting, resume building, job search, interview skills, mentoring, and pride in and giving service to their community. We also offer tutoring resources to ensure these teens are doing well in school while gaining valuable job skills.
The first 2 weeks of our job training program consist of Saturday classes teaching the basics of good kitchen practices and food handling. The following 10 weeks see the student working in the restaurant while learning about the many aspects of employment including time management, career planning, resume building, overcoming personal barriers to success, and so much more! All this while earning minimum wage.
