When you hear the words “Food Service Worker,” what are you thinking of? A burger-flipper? A waiter? In fact, it doesn’t mean what you think it does. Centennial College’s #food Service Worker program is taught at the School of Community and #health studies because it’s actually a program about health. Instead of becoming part of a restaurant, you’re studying to become a part of a #healthcare team that provides the nutritional needs of patients. It’s a #college certificate program that runs for only a single semester, meaning it provides a quick way to enter the workforce and participate in a meaningful career. To get the real facts, we spoke directly to the program’s chair, Natashia Deer, to learn what it’s really about.

No matter who you are or where you’re from, you deserve an education. At Centennial College, we believe in removing barriers to education and have many success stories as evidence. We provide the resources, and our students make it happen with their determination. Javon Williams is one such success story.

A resident of the Malvern area, Javon faced barriers to a career and education in his youth, which ended in his incarceration. Determined to make his education and career work out anyway, he enrolled in Centennial College’s HYPE program. Next, he moved on to our Digital Visual Effects program, and then to a career with Vice Media, among other things.. His transformation and experiences through the college are a true story of persistence and the value of an inclusive environment. Here’s the story of his journey. #success #career #education #college #inspiration
