Register by Friday, Jan. 6, for Jump Start Your Success in School Nutrition Programs

The 2023 Jump Start Your Success in School Nutrition Programs offers a blend of in-person, live virtual and on-demand personalized training opportunities for new and aspiring school food service directors and managers. 

This training opportunity is for those with less than three years of experience. Those with three years of experience or more can participate as a mentor. 

The 2023 free, multiweek Jump Start program will offer real-time and immediately applicable opportunities facilitated by Kansas State Department of Education’s Child Nutrition and Wellness (CNW) staff members and mentors. Jump Start has been developed to incorporate personalized training and leadership development through mentoring opportunities and to encourage open group discussion so participants can be actively involved in learning best practices from the field. 

Participants who complete the Jump Start program will develop the skills and knowledge needed for the successful operation of school nutrition programs. 

Register by Friday, Jan. 6, for Jump Start, and plan to join CNW from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, in Salina at the Smoky Hill Education Service Center for the kickoff event. 

For more information about Jump Start as a participant or mentor, contact Kelly Chanay, CNW assistant director, via email at kchanay@ksde.org
