New Culinary Training Program at SCC

Part of the First Source Jobs Program, SCC’s new five-month culinary training program prepares graduates for career-building jobs as line cooks, prep cooks, restaurant chefs, grill cooks, assistant cooks and other culinary service positions. Program participants also have the opportunity to earn college credit at Bunker Hill Community College. 

The training program includes hands-on kitchen training, job coaching, guest speakers from the culinary world, field trips, career readiness training, and job search support. All training at Somerville Community Corporation is free, and participants who continue to BHCC may be eligible for free tuition through Pell Grants. 

“This new training program is a fantastic opportunity for people that are interested in starting careers in hospitality and the culinary arts,” states Blake Roberts Crall, First Source Jobs Program manager. “We are excited to be able to offer hands-on cooking classes in combination with workshops to prepare participants for success on the job, along with one-on-one support from a career coach.”

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
