Since its beginning in 1997, Colorado ProStart spent more than 7.5 million to educate and train more than 10,000 high school students in restaurant management, foodservice, and hospitality. The Foundation has trained hundreds of industry volunteers to walk into classrooms to help teach the curriculum and to hire and mentor ProStart students pursuing their careers in this industry; provided ProStart teachers with thousands of hours of industry training and professional development support; placed thousands of students in industry mentored worksites; and has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to graduating Colorado ProStart students pursuing their post-secondary education in the foodservice and hospitality industry.
We Need Your Help to Grow
Today the program is in high demand. Our goal is to establish Colorado ProStart within reach of every high school who wants it. We continue to partner with new organizations to grow our impact each year. CRAEF provides curriculum development and training for teachers and industry, program evaluation support, and other services.
Your donation is put to work immediately to support CRAEF: It helps cover costs of current programming and the expense of establishing new programs in new communities—hopefully yours.
