Classes are paced for youth cooking without adult help, but family supervision is encouraged as needed. Thanks to funding from Just Date Syrup, the first class per family is only $5 and financial aid for the series is also available. For those who can pay full price, tuition funds sponsor the Chef Career Training program for youth in need of a fresh start.
Use the code FirstClass5 to access the special $5 offer. All remaining classes are $20 per household. Info and registration
