CHOW Classes Are Now Open!

virtual classes begin this spring, 2024

The COLORS Hospitality Opportunities for Workers (CHOW) Institute provides an 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, like fine dining waitstaff, bartenders and managers.

As the restaurant industry is facing a serious labor shortage, restaurants need the training that CHOW offers. CHOW fills this labor gap while ensuring the majority of restaurant job opportunities guarantee fair wages and better workplace practices.


ROC-Pennsylvania’s Soft Skills & Resume Workshop course will help identify and engage with your career aspirations, while developing the interpersonal skills that are so vital for your success and advancement in this industry. Through the curriculum, you will learn to harness your strengths, weaknesses, values, interests, goals and passions, while developing the qualities that will equip you for growth and evolution.
