SASSY (School After School for Successful Youth)
Founded in 1986, SASSY is an accredited after-school vocational training program for students from the Ravenswood City School District (RCSD), Sequoia Union High School District (SUHSD) and the Palo Alto Unifed School District. Students who complete SASSY classes may earn up to 10 academic credits each semester for participating in the program.
SASSY classes (Digital Multimedia and Culinary Arts) are conducted after the regular school day, Monday through Thursday. Each SASSY student has access to one-on-one counseling.
Students work with digital video and audio equipment and website construction tools to create a variety of youth-oriented media projects. Students work individually and in groups to develop their own projects and support a variety of community-based efforts.
This is a hands-on class that introduces students to the basics of cooking, kitchen sanitation, and safety. Students are exposed to a variety of ethnic cuisines and make a wide range of dishes using many different ingredients. Food preparation work includes learning to make sauces, soups, salads, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Students work in teams and individually to complete assigned tasks. This class is also responsible for cooking the evening meal for a local Homeless Veterans program.
