We are cooking up great food and offering bright futures right here in Smithfield, North Carolina!

Are you looking for a career in the food industry? Our Cyber Café culinary training program is a best-practice model within the community, offering culinary education and vocational training. Our rewarding twelve-week program includes classroom instruction, as well as hands-on training working in the Cyber Café.   While at the Cyber, students are taught valuable customer skills, they learn how to work together, divide tasks among themselves, manage conflicts, and behave professionally. 

Our classes are limited in size, which allows our certified instructor to devote more time to each student.  Additionally, it enables the instructor to assist any student requiring extra help.

According to Holly J., a graduate of the first culinary training class offered, “At first, I was a little worried about being back in a classroom, but this class was small and the instructor was very accommodating.  It gave me my confidence back, as well as the necessary skills needed to find employment.  Today, I am successfully employed and fully independent.”

In addition to benefitting the students and the community, our partnering agencies now have the advantage of offering their clients a viable training opportunity that has a “hands-on” approach to learning and vocational training.

As stated by Janet Davis, Counselor in Charge, NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services,  Smithfield location, “The training provided by the Cyber prepares all graduates with truly marketable work skills such as ServSafe certification, technical cooking skills, and the much-needed customer service piece missing from so many programs of study. I have seen first-hand participants improve their self-confidence in their abilities by attending the program.”
