Cooking Class Volunteer

Interested in coming to our classes for free or gaining a valuable internship experience?  Consider being a CC Class Volunteer.  Volunteers should be health oriented, interested in learning CC’s evidence-based nutrition recommendations, and be comfortable cooking, cleaning, and prepping in the kitchen. Volunteer tasks will include:purple-round

  • setting up work stations for class participants
  • prep work (chopping, rinsing fruits and vegetables, preparing necessary equipment, etc.)
  • greeting guests and assisting class participants throughout each session
  • assisting in cleanup after the class.

This experience is highly valuable for someone interested in health education, nutrition, culinary education, and/or public health. This would be a great opportunity for students in the School of Public Health! Contact colacook@mailbox.sc.edu if interested.
