Welcome to Shanghai Young Bakers! See our Succes Stories, or view our Catering Classes

Founded in 2008, Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB) is a charity program providing a fully-sponsored French bakery training to disadvantaged Chinese youth (aged 17-23), enabling them to find qualified jobs and lead independent lives after graduation.

During the one-year training, SYB students follow classes in traditional Western bakery, life skills and English, combined with a practical internship at international hotels.

Sponsored by Carrefour Foundation as well as Accor Foundation and other companies, this social innovation program is managed by a dynamic multicultural team, and operates under the governance of Chi Heng Foundation with the support of the Shanghai Charity Foundation.

Since 2011, half-day bakery classes, social teambuilding events, and bread & pastry catering are available to individuals and companies wishing to contribute to the success and sustainability of the program.  




公益组织海上青焙坊(Shanghai Young Bakers)成立于2008年,项目致力于为来自困难家庭17-23岁的青少年无偿提供一年的免费法式烘焙技术训练,以使得他们可以在毕业后找到合适的就业机会并自力更生。
