New Haven’s focus on career technical education and life skills prepares youth to progress beyond bottom-rung jobs and into a career where their personal goals can be fulfilled. Our Catering4Youth Academy is a delicious addition to our entrepreneurial leadership curriculum. From exotic chicken satay to savory corn chowder to mouth-watering cheese and basil panini sandwiches to delectable chocolate-covered treats, everyone is dishing about the gourmet goodies that are served up by our enthusiastic youth chefs.

Designed to integrate industry-based standards with academic instruction, this innovative learning environment engages non-traditional learners and prepares them with the knowledge and skills necessary to graduate with a high school diploma and pursue post-secondary education and training. The academy provides job preparation as it creates multiple pathways leading to entry-level hospitality employment for our enterprising youth.
