Three months after their culinary training at Ducasse Institute Philippines, ten scholars of the Youth with a Future initiative had their graduation ceremony at Enderun Colleges’ Restaurant 101.

These 10 scholars from Tuloy Foundation were chosen to have their culinary training at Ducasse Institute Philippines after a successful charity dinner and auction held last March with guest of honor, world-renowned chef and founder of Ducasse Education, chef Alain Ducasse.

Among the guests of the graduation ceremony were donors and supporters of Youth with a Future, including David Batchelor, managing director of Raffles and Fairmont Makati, a long-time supporter of Tuloy. Also in attendance were Dr. Edgardo Rodriguez, president of Enderun Colleges and Fr. Rocky Evangelista, founder of Tuloy Foundation.

A project of Ducasse Education in France and Ducasse Institute Philippines at Enderun Colleges, Youth with a Future was inspired by the “Women with a Future” initiative led by Alain Ducasse Enterprise where underprivileged women from Paris are selected to train for a year in a specially designed culinary program. The training program concludes with an apprenticeship in one of Alain Ducasse’s restaurants. Similarly, Youth with a Future aims to support and provide educational scholarships to a select group of culinary students of Tuloy Foundation.

Tuloy Foundation is a non-government and non-profit organization that houses and educates street children in order to reintegrate them into mainstream society.
