Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB) is a charity program providing free training in French bakery to marginalised Chinese youth aged 17 to 23, enabling them to find qualified jobs and lead independent lives after graduation.

SYB empowers disadvantaged young adults who had to drop out of school because of their family situation (parents’ death, sickness, disability or imprisonment) and are excluded from stable employment.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and donors, SYB students follow a one-year training where they learn valuable skills such as French bakery and pastry, Chinese bakery, life skills and English, combined with practical internships at 5-star hotels. Due to the high demand of qualified bakers on the Chinese market, 30 students each year start a new life as bakers or pastry chefs and are able to support themselves and their families.

公益组织海上青焙坊(Shanghai Young Bakers)致力于为来自困难家庭的17至23岁青少年提供为期一年的免费法式烘焙培训,使其在毕业后能够找到稳定的工作、自力更生。




The charity program was founded in 2008. In 2011, we created a social enterprise that offers a wide range of services to support the program:

  •   Baking classes

    • Public baking and pastry classes, for adults and kids

    • Customized team-building activities

    • Corporate volunteering opportunities

  • Bakery & pastry products

    • Customized catering services

    • Weekly bread baskets and monthly cake boxes

    • Sale of students’ baked goods at farmers’ markets

  • Services for bakery professionals

    • Intensive professional training courses in French bakery

    • Technical consulting

All proceeds go to the SYB charity program. From baking enthusiasts who want to learn new recipes to social-minded companies looking for a caterer for their events, there is a way for everyone to support the Young Bakers!

We need your help to lend a hand to more underprivileged youth and create more social change through bakery!
