“Shadow a Chef” Experience Offered by Lakeshore Technical College

High school juniors and seniors can sign up now.




To help high school juniors and seniors determine whether pursuing an education in culinary arts is a good fit for them, Lakeshore Technical College is offering “Shadow a Chef” sessions beginning in January. Participants will be paired with a culinary arts student who will engage in coursework matching the participant’s interests. Participants will also experience what it’s like to be a student training for a career in the food service industry.

Shadowing sessions will take place in Lakeshore’s state-of-the-art culinary facility located on its Cleveland campus. Sessions will be scheduled during a class that matches each individual participant’s interests, and on a day and time that fits their schedule.

For more information or to arrange a “Shadow a Chef” session, students or parents can contact Lakeshore Culinary Arts Program Coordinator/Instructor Chef Amanda Weber at amanda.weber@gotoltc.edu or 920.693.1645.
