HRA Educational Foundation looking for new chef mentors and restaurants who want to hire interns

Marcus Fikse, Hawaii ProStart Coordinator

The Hawaii Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (HRAEF), through its high school culinary program ProStart, continues to work with high school students throughout the state. We have many projects underway at the moment, including the creation of multiple social media platforms which will highlight the students and instructors who are taking part in the program and allow them to showcase their passion for the industry and culinary arts.

We are still actively searching for new chef mentors to visit our classrooms and for restaurants who are interested in hiring our student interns. Please reach out to ProStart Coordinator Marcus Fikse if you have interest in being a part of this program.

We are also in the process of planning our first big event, a Kick-Off Party, where we will invite the students, their parents, instructors, donors and of course YOU to all join us as we celebrate this great program. Details about date and location will be coming soon. STAY TUNED!
