There’s no substitute for hands-on experience.

The James Beard Foundation offers current culinary students the opportunity to work side by side with some of the best culinary minds in the world through our Kitchen Volunteer Program.

 

Students enhance their own skills, work with rare ingredients, and learn about wine and beverage pairings, all while networking with the exclusive cadre of chefs who pass through the Beard House kitchen on a daily basis.

 

Are you a current culinary student (with valid student ID) in the New York City area? Join us at the Beard House! You can start by downloading our Policies and Procedures form and an application.
