Ending Jim Crow 670×325

The COLORS Hospitality Opportunities for Workers (CHOW) Institute is among ROC’s most rewarding programs. CHOW provides in-depth and advanced professional training in both front- and back-of-the-house restaurant skills at no cost to either employers or employees.

CHOW participants enjoy a multi-tiered curriculum designed to prepare them for living-wage jobs as fine dining wait staff, bartenders, and in managerial roles. The results have been stunning. ROC trains over 1,000 employees nationwide each year, with a living wage job placement rate of 60-75%, depending on the location.

The restaurant industry needs CHOW. Our industry is facing a serious labor shortage. Programs like CHOW fill this labor gap while ensuring the majority of those job opportunities offer fair wages and workplace practices for all.

CHOW has changed the lives of thousands of restaurant workers across the country. However, ROC needs your support for it to continue to thrive. Click here to donate $20, or whatever you can give, to ROC United today.
