- Civic Organizations, Clubs and Services
The Floured Apron is a nonprofit bakery job training and mentoring program for women from underserved communities. We provide our students with one-on-one coaching/mentoring, professional development and a hands-on bakery curriculum to ensure the successful placement of our graduates in the food service industry.
Our objectives are to: 1) Provide the tools and support necessary for motivated, capable low-income women from underserved Chicago communities to believe in the possibility of their own potential; 2) Empower our students with the training and skill development necessary for entry into culinary industry employment; and 3) Increase the economic stability of our graduates and that of their family through culinary industry job placement.
