EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute

EDWINS Leadership & Restaurant Institute gives formerly incarcerated adults a foundation in the culinary and hospitality industry while providing a support network necessary their long-term success. Their mission is three-fold: to teach a skilled and in-demand trade in the culinary arts, empower willing minds through passion for hospitality management, and prepare students for a successful transition home.


Today, between its prison program and restaurant and institute, EDWINS Leadership and Restaurant Institute graduates nearly 100 students a year. It also serves as a global model for how society can better support people who are re-entering the workforce.

After finishing the program or after release from prison, over 97% of graduates gain employment.
