An Opportunity for U.S. CCID Members with Culinary Programs!

The Secondary School of Gastronomy and Hotel Industry Ltd., one of the oldest and largest private schools in the Czech Republic (www.ssgh.cz), has contacted CCID to inquire about the possibility of their students visiting a culinary program in the United States.  They currently cooperate with many gastronomy schools across Europe. (Germany, Spain, Greece, Italy) and in 2015 they extended their international exchange program to China.  Their goal for 2016 is to expand their partnership to community colleges in the United States.

They are currently trying to establish a week-long program for early November 2016 for approximately 10 students. Their deadline for applying for a grant from the Prague City Hall is approaching and they would like to move quickly. If you you are interested or would like more information, please contact their project manager for international student exchange programs, William Cryer, directly at William.Cryer@ssgh.cz.
