The World Association of Master Chefs - Vietnam Chapter will offer a two-and-a-half-month training course and job opportunities to young people who are disadvantaged, orphaned, or lost relatives to COVID-19.

The training program, which is in its second continuous year, plans to provide classes for 60 trainees aged 17 to 25, including 30 in cooking and 30 in baking.

The course, to be instructed by members of the association, is expected to be launched in November and scheduled to have 20 classes, 10 practice sessions at restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, two charity cooking events at shelters in the city, and one graduation test.

At the end of the course, trainees will graduate with a certificate issued by the World Association of Master Chefs - Vietnam Chapter which is recognized at many partner restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City.

Most of the trainees from the training course last year were able to find a job, according to Tran Le Thanh Thien, World Association of Master Chefs - Vietnam Chapter's vice-president.

“I’m grateful for the instructors who were enthusiastically teaching us how to cook from basics to professional techniques,” So Hao Ha Long, an alumnus from a shelter in Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City said at the ceremony to announce the 2022 course on August 26.

“Now I have a stable job.

“I hope more people will learn about this program and have their dream of pursuing professional cooking come true.”

Long came to register for the program in 2021 when he was a student at Ho Chi Minh City Food Industry.

The 23-year-old is now working as a vice cook at a café in District 1.

The program is meant to support disadvantaged people to find jobs, as well as create a workforce for the local food industry, said chef Le Nguyen Hoan Long, another vice-president of the World Association of Master Chefs - Vietnam Chapter.

“We hope young people will be skilled and position themselves well in our society,” he said.

The program also aims to create chances for experienced chefs to pass their torch and inspire future generations, while contributing to the society and raising a spirit of solidarity between businesses in the food industry, chef Long added.

Besides the training course, the World Association of Master Chefs - Vietnam Chapter will join a Vietnam Red Cross charity program to make and distribute 2,000 mooncakes to celebrate the coming Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on September 10.
