Become a ProStart Educator
ProStart® educators help build the future leaders of the foodservice and hospitality industry.
How ProStart Works
- Over the course of the Level 1 & 2 program, students will immerse themselves in the curriculum and mentored work experience. Students who complete the full program are eligible to earn the ProStart National Certificate of Achievement, which is tied to articulation and scholarship opportunities.
- In addition to helping students jumpstart industry careers, ProStart is also an entry-way to further education, with many college culinary, restaurant and hospitality programs equating ProStart to introductory courses.
How ProStart Helps Educators
- With a combination of industry-driven curriculum, exciting competitions and connections with your local restaurant community, ProStart helps you provide a platform for students to discover new interests and talents.
- Through the Colorado Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, Colorado Restaurant Association, and the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation partners, ProStart will connect you to fellow career and technical educators within your state, and across the country.
- You'll discover a network of educators and industry representatives committed to providing you with the support and resources you need to develop the next generation of industry leaders.
