The PRLA Educational Foundation has partnered with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to bring the Restaurant Ready program to Pennsylvania. Restaurant Ready is a national program for young people between the ages of 16 and 24, who are neither enrolled in school nor working, dedicated to helping them acquire basic job and life skills necessary to pursue jobs in the restaurant industry, and jumpstart a pathway to independence.
How does it work?
Restaurant Ready facilitates connections between community-based organizations who are working with Opportunity Youth and community restaurants for a 6-week training program focused on work-ready competencies. The competencies are designed to help participants acquire the skills, discipline, and confidence to start a job and stay employed.
