Be a Sprouts Chef Instructor!

Share your passion for cooking with the next generation of chefs!

Are you a chef? Do you have professional cooking experience? Do you love working with kids, and want to give back to your community? Come teach cooking classes with Sprouts!

Sprouts Cooking Club is a Bay­ Area Nonprofit that teaches kids from all socio­economic backgrounds what REAL food is all about through hands­-on cooking with REAL chefs from hotshot restaurants like Tartine Bakery, Delfina, and Chez Panisse! We are proud to have Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver on our board of directors!

We are currently looking for volunteer Chef Instructors that are passionate about Alice Water’s mission to educate kids about the importance of nutrition and cooking! You’ll get to work hands-on with our chef kiddos who are so excited to get cookin’ in the kitchen with you! It’s a super rewarding way to use your culinary chops in a fun and exciting environment!

We are looking for motivated, personable instructors interested in nutrition and passionate about cooking. Strong leadership, an appreciation for community service, quick thinking and adaptability to new environments are all key qualities that we look for as we interview potential team members.
