Supervised by a Youth Worker and Club Volunteer, each week we cover general safety and cleanliness in the kitchen: food safe practices, cross contamination, safety with equipment and appliances. Through this program, youth gain confidence in self and abilities, communication, teamwork, relationship building and independence/responsibility (eg cleaning up after cooking).
Junior Chef is also offered at the Bragg Creek Community Centre and we are excited to announce the launch of Junior Baker also being held at the Bragg Community Centre. These programs will be led by talented youth workers as well as many guest volunteers. Junior Chef will run in 8 week sessions.
