Mentoring Meals
This program was born from the inspiration of a former foster youth in Washington, DC who ascended to a leadership position in a utility company. Arriving in his chauffeured limousine to address students in our culinary arts job training class, he surprised us all with his humility. Shedding his tailored suit jacket, loosening his silk tie, removing his custom-made cufflinks, and rolling up his sleeves, he donned an apron and joined our students in the kitchen. Together, they cooked, laughed, and shared stories. After the meal was prepared, he sat down to dine with the students, sparking the idea for Mentoring Meals. This initiative invites high-level professionals to share a meal with students, discussing their careers and the paths to their success in an informal and engaging setting. Conversations are often recorded and aired on our YouTube channel under FAMversations, used as a story in Youth News and/or go unrecorded.
