Adult Mentor Chef

As a Teen Kitchen Project volunteer you have the opportunity to be involved in our kitchen side by side with many teens and adults to create the hundreds of beautifully delicious and nourishing meals we make every week for families in our community who are dealing with serious illness. 

We have two kitchens - one in Santa Cruz and  one in Watsonville and adult Mentor Chefs are needed at both locations. 

Mentor Chef volunteers commit to volunteer once a week for six months. 

With your participation, families are nourished and our community strengthened. It is as simple as that.

Whether you have never cooked before, or feel confident in your skills, there is a place for you at Teen Kitchen Project. We will find the right job for your skill level and give you the opportunity to learn more. We are serving food to nourish families who need support, so the energy and intention as we work in the kitchen is really important for the healing potential of the meals. We expect everyone to focus on the positive intent of putting healing energy, nourishment and love into the food.

Volunteers are needed in Watsonville and Santa Cruz!
