Stone’s Throw

Stone’s Throw culinary training empowers people overcoming challenges to change their lives through job readiness training & skills development opportunities.

Stone’s Throw has two annual programs:

In fall, a four-week baking skills program &, in spring, an eight-week culinary job training program. Both programs are all-day intensives that teach both “hard” & “soft” professional skills. Stone’s Throw is supported by the Alaska Mental Health Trust, the Rasmuson Foundation, Tanana Chiefs Conference, the Department of Labor, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation & the Literacy Council of Alaska.

Teaching Critical Success Skills

Stone’s Throw recognizes that education is critical to career development. The program focuses on culinary technical skills, food safety training, & life skills such as interpersonal interaction & coachability, which are necessary for success in the workforce.

Along with the technical skills of success, Stone’s Throw teaches “soft skills” essential to obtaining and maintaining employment.
