Mission Statement

Liberty's Kitchen is a social enterprise dedicated to transforming the lives of New Orleans' at-risk youth by providing a path to self-sufficiency through our foodservice-based job training, leadership, and employability programs.

Description

Through participation in our Youth Development Program, participants ages 16-21 receive both occupational and employability skills training and we address the social issues that have created barriers to their employment and advancement as productive citizens. Our intensive training program combines hands-on food-service training with classroom instruction, individual case management, job placement services and follow-up support for one full year beyond completion of the program. On-the-job skills training takes place in our school commissary kitchen and at our cafĂ©’s kitchen and espresso bar - providing a safe environment to learn basic culinary and customer service skills. We also teach important work readiness skills such as punctuality, resume writing, computer literacy, interviewing techniques, positive work attitude, and teamwork. Students learn to solve problems non-violently; they gain self-respect and learn to respect others.
