Our Mission

Our mission is to create opportunities that empower personal growth through culinary training and employment. Cutting Barriers Employment and Training aims to address the current and evolving needs of our community through training, employment, and community partnerships.

Training

Participants in the training program will not only gain employable skills, they build confidence in themselves and motivation to succeed in the workplace. It is our mission to instill each individual with a healthy sense of self that will empower them in their daily lives.

Employment

Our catering services to local businesses and events create employment opportunities for trainees and graduates to grow their culinary skills. Wrap around services also provide job placement opportunities within the community and continued support as trainees enter the workforce.

Partnerships

Many small hospitality businesses are struggling to find and keep reliable staff. We partner with local restaurants who want to hire trained, ready & willing workers. We work closely with them to ensure that the transition from training to employment is supportive, collaborative, and win-win.
