For more than 20 years, the El Cajon Project has purposefully and powerfully guided at-risk and underserved youth to discover and develop their inner potential through a multi-faceted, innovative, and rigorous culinary arts training program. Our program encourages students to master crucial life and workplace skills and prepares them for a successful culinary career while building credits towards a high school diploma. The El Cajon Project currently enrolls students from 11 public high schools in 6 San Francisco Bay Area school districts where program participants have realized higher graduation rates, fewer student disciplinary problems, greater participation in peer leadership programs, and long-term employment retention.
