Vetri Cooking Lab Volunteer - Spring 2020 Semester
37 people are interested
Vetri Cooking Lab is an out-of-school time program hosted in 30 sites throughout Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ. We're looking for volunteers to assist our Educators as they guide students through class recipes, teach important nutrition lessons, and highlight science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Classes are built for 12-15 students in 4th-6th grades, with each session taking place in a 2-hour block of time. Semesters run for 10 weeks, with our Spring semester beginning in late February.
Specific schedules (days and times) vary from site to site, but generally speaking all of our Labs run at some point between Monday - Thursday, and between the hours of 3 - 6 pm for a 10-week semester. Each Lab runs for 2 hours. If you are interested in becoming a Vetri Cooking Lab Instructor, please email Ridhdhi Parmar at email@example.com for more information of our Volunteer on-boarding process. The summer is a great time to be on-boarded as a new volunteer
Volunteers must be able to commit to a 10-week program, meeting on the same day each week. Essentially, we would prefer to have the same volunteer at a site for all 10 Labs throughout the semester. We understand that things can come up, and that volunteers may not be able to make all 10 days.
Volunteers do not need to be chefs or nutritionists! We are teaching basic, home cooking techniques to allow our students to recreate recipes at home.
About Vetri Community Partnership
211 N 13 St, Philadelphia, PA 19107, US
Established to help kids experience the connection between healthy eating and healthy living, Vetri Community Partnership empowers children and families to lead healthier lives through fresh food, hands-on experiences and education.
Children who have healthy bodies and healthy minds have the opportunity to create healthy lives for themselves. We envision healthier children with fewer obesity-related health issues who become empowered adults who can then pass nutritional eating habits onto their children. We’re committed to breaking the cycle of poor eating habits passed down from generation to generation.
We love real food. We are not nutritionists, dietitians or doctors. We are chefs, restaurant industry transplants and food lovers who understand that healthy food is better received when it’s served in a delicious and dignified way.
Our programs aren’t prescriptive; they’re experiential. When kids connect with real, whole food in the cafeteria or in the kitchen, they are inspired to make informed decisions, influence their families and become a voice for healthier choices in their communities.
