ProStart is a national career-building program for high school students who are interested in culinary arts and foodservice management.

The Missouri ProStart program is inspiring a new generation of talent, which will build the Missouri restaurant industry through real world education combined with classroom curriculum relevant to today’s evolving foodservice industry.
Many students have a newfound interest in high school and are applying themselves academically in other classes in order to be a part of the two-year restaurant management and culinary arts program.
