Our Internship Program

The Community Culinary School seeks diverse internship sites including corporate and institutional kitchens, restaurants, and caterers. These sites offer students a valuable hands-on experience and the opportunity to further their skills within the workplace. The benefits to the internship site include: the opportunity to mentor a student seeking a food service career; evaluation of potential employees’ skills before hiring; valuable personnel resources at no expense; a promotional tool through inclusion in the Community Culinary School media outreach.
