Youth at multiple recreation centers learn safe cooking & food preparation techniques, as well as how to create an affordable, healthy recipe.


Looking for individuals with a passion for and/or background in nutrition, culinary arts, or health who enjoy working with young people from diverse backgrounds and possess qualities of patience, open-mindedness and flexibility. Instructors lead our after-school 4-H programs at recreation centers throughout Metro Denver. Each week, the hour long Healthy Cooking classes involve safe food preparation skills, encourage cooperation through group work, and build stronger decision-making skills related to health. Each class provides nutrition education and provides the opportunity to make tasty, affordable, easy recipes featuring nutritious foods highlighted in the lesson. We have ten different recreation centers offering our programs; volunteers are able to pick the one that works best with their location.
