Why ProStart?

ProStart set me up for success within the industry, allowing myself to feel confident in the kitchen. Without that program and competition, I would not be here graduating from the Bachelors Program at The Culinary Institute of America.
​- Baylee Mello, 2015
ProStart was a great experience because it helped me boost my self confidence and overcome my anxiety. I would do it again in a heartbeat because of what I learned and friends I made along the way.
​- Katie Werra, 2017
ProStart was an amazing experience because it allowed me to demonstrate leadership and a state championship title to the Taunton High culinary department for future culinary students.
​- Victoria Soares, 2017
Competition  was life changing!!! Joining was one of the best decisions I've made. Since I was a high school athlete playing hockey, I thought that was all I knew, but I was wrong, I strongly encourage all to join the program and experience the greatness that my team and I had, because it was truly amazing!!!
​- Cam Carnes 2017
ProStart gave me the ability to test my culinary skills and learn to work in a team as well as showcase my talents individually. It showed me many different perspectives and how much I enjoy working in the food industry.
​- Mike Fernandez, 2017 
ProStart was an extremely positive experience. I learned many valuable lessons and it helped me develop skills I will use for the rest of my life. I am beyond thankful for everything I have taken from the ProStart community  and believe everyone should get to experience something like this.
