Real Job Training. Real Opportunity.
Thrive DC works with individuals who are facing major barriers to employment such as homelessness, a long history of joblessness, substance abuse, or felony convictions by training them for a new culinary career.
Our Real Opportunity Training Program (Real Opps) is designed to help clients jump-start their culinary careers while providing mentorship throughout the process.
Real Opps is designed for the individual who wants to make a real change in their lives, and therefore clients must be committed to the program for 18 weeks. To support that commitment, Thrive DC provides a small stipend to all participants. Near the end of training, clients will also have the opportunity to test for a Food Handler’s License.
For those who complete the program, achieving their goals is very possible!
