Jobs West Program for disabled individuals

Timothy Joins Tendon Kohaku

In 2019, Timothy started in a joint program with the Vancouver School Board and DDA where he had a combination of classroom training and community exposure to learn all the skills necessary for success after high school. This lead to a volunteer experience at Belkin House where he learned the basics of how a commercial kitchen operates. In February 2021, he started a work experience at the Rise Eatery where he honed his skills as a Barista, learned more about baking and confirmed his passion for all things gastronomic!
