Throughout Central Florida, we have seen an increase in crime and a decrease in employment.
Chef Empowerment's objective is to reverse these statistics by offering vocational training and immediate job placement for individuals who successfully complete our program.
We are partnering with corporate & local mom and pop restaurants to offer employment opportunities and vocational skills that can put these individuals on the path to success.
We are completely dedicated and passionate about training our future culinary leaders!
After graduating from the Santa Fe Kirkpatrick Institute of Public Safety in 2011, Carl Watts began his journey as Gang Intervention Specialist with Gainesville Police Department's Black on Black Crime Task Force. He worked with "at-risk" adults(ages 18-24), specializing in Crisis Intervention and Life Skill Development. Chef Carl became an mentee of Chef Bert Gill, who noticed Watts love for food. Chef Carl is now the chef of Blue Gill Quality Food in Gainesville, Fl. We're happy to have him serve as the Executive Director of Chef Empowerment.
Your donation will employ youth throughout Central Florida & provide individuals with a vocational skill that will allow them to put meals on their family's table for a lifetime!!
