PARTICIPANT PROFILE: Steve Robinson

A LIFE MANAGEMENT SKILLS “GRADUATE”

Steve Robinson could be called a graduate of Centre 507’s Life Management Skills program, which recently had its funding renewed. He credits the program’s workshops on managing time, stress and anger with helping him get accepted into the culinary program at The Mission. Steve has also worked as a paid participant in the kitchen at Centre 507.

“I consider Centre 507 to be my launching pad”, said Steve, before starting the culinary program in March. “I’m a little nervous because I haven’t always done well in school, but it’s a great opportunity”.

The Mission’s culinary program involves six months of chef training, learning everything from recipes and knife handling, to safe food preparation and storage, to the business side of running a restaurant.

“My coming to Centre 507 has put me on this path. It’s been a great help and a great blessing,” Steve said.
