Culinary Arts Program
Hospitality, cooking, culinary preparation and presentation with employment as the goal.
Three year suggested attendance after successfully completing a readiness evaluation.
This program is designed to help individuals with Aspergers and high functioning disabilities identify, develop, and achieve their goals while exploring opportunities to advance their education, employment, life skills, health, and well-being. D'Vine Path will actively seek and support work opportunities for its students in the restaurant, catering and hospitality industries.
During the course of the program, all students are required to take vocational and life skills classes to learn about health, fitness, nutrition, and general exposure to the hospitality industry. As the curriculum advances, students will learn hands-on training in local commercial kitchens and catering events.
This is a suggested three year program, with required student attendance of class on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students in their second year will take a readiness evaluation to determine if they are ready to move forward while maintaining the healthy habits learned at D'Vine Path.
