We offer no-cost lessons to teenagers in the Boston area through partnerships with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester and the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston. Proceeds from our public classes, private events and e-commerce site fund this program.
Boys & Girls Clubs:
Teens from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester learn to cook at 4-week and 10-week hands-on cooking classes held at the Milk Street Cooking School in Boston on Monday evenings.
Big Sister Association of Greater Boston:
We offer two programs serving girls and teenagers associated with the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, cooking classes to support Big+Little matches and a career coaching workshop series for teenage girls.
For a fun afternoon together, Big and Little Sisters can drop in to Milk Street for hands-on cooking classes on scheduled Sundays throughout the year.
On four Sundays per year we gather eight highly successful women from a variety of fields--from teaching to government to nursing and banking—to spend a day with eight Boston teenaged girls at Milk Street. The women and teens cook together and complete two intensive workshops on goal setting and communication skills.
