There are many different opportunities for young people in the food service industry in Maine and across the country. Hancock County Technical Center's ProStart program will help prepare you for those opportunities and establish a foundation for further learning whether you immediately pursue a food service career or go on to hospitality management or a culinary program at the college level.
The ProStart program gives the chance to explore career opportunities and gain the skills needed to operate and manage a foodservice operation by joining classroom learning with on-the-job experience. Topics covered include food preparation, basic accounting, workplace safety and communications.
During the program, you will get hands-on experience in different areas of food service in the operation of our on-site Brookside Restaurant. You will work directly with industry professionals who serve as mentors to make sure you are getting as much as possible out of the work experience and have the chance to practice what you learn in the classroom.
The Culinary Arts curriculum was developed by the Educational Foundation of the National Restaurant Association, with guidance from educators and representatives of the foodservice industry and is recognized throughout the country.
