  • Common kitchen terminology
  • Basic knife skills
  • Customer service
  • Weights and measures
  • Varied preparation methods for eggs, meat, vegetables, stocks, and much more
  • ServSafe certification

Upon successful completion of the RISE Program, students participate in a graduation ceremony and prepare to apply for work in our community.
