Upon release from prison, participants continue in the program and are served by The RIDGE Project or one of its regional partners.

The RIDGE Project also implements three legislatively specified activities: Healthy marriage, responsible parenting, and economic stability. The program expansion supplement will support the project’s culinary arts training and employment, designed to prepare program participants for careers in the culinary field. According to recent data from the People Report Workforce Index, which surveys restaurant human resources departments and recruiters on trends in employment, continued job growth is anticipated in the food service industry, with high levels of recruiting difficulty, and a rise in vacancies/turnovers expected. Employers are reporting that though they have hundreds of applicants, they are finding it increasingly difficult to find employees with the right skill set. The RIDGE Project will begin offering an 8-week Culinary Arts training to formerly incarcerated fathers who have successfully completed their flagship responsible fatherhood and economic stability program and have evidenced their commitment to responsible fatherhood and show an aptitude and interest in the food service industry. The program will provide students with the basic skills necessary to function in an entry-level capacity in a restaurant or commercial kitchen. Successful students will complete the program having achieved the ServSafeTM Certification, and will have demonstrated the core skills necessary to begin work in food preparation or as a line cook entrance chef. Finally, upon satisfactory completion, The RIDGE Project’s Workforce Development Department will function to assist the fathers with job placement, including subsidized wages in local restaurants.
