NECAT is a place where second chances are born and dreams emerge from darkness. Many NECAT students are grappling with chronic unemployment, lack of training, homelessness, substance abuse recovery or prior incarceration. NECAT’s tuition-free culinary job training program is offering hope and opportunity for those individuals willing to work hard for a chance at a better life.

We’ve trained more than 300 students since opening our doors in 2013, and our goal is to grow our program and double the number of individuals we train and place in culinary jobs each year. Seventy-five percent of the students we graduate secure full-time employment and start their journey to economic self-sufficiency. With your help, NECAT can advance its mission of preparing disadvantaged individuals for work, life and a promising future.
