Shanghai Young Bakers

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: September 26, 2013, 10:24 AM


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

Launched in February 2009, sponsored by Carrefour Foundation and other corporations, SYB's one-year training combines intensive classes in both French and Chinese bakery, with practical internships at 4&5-star hotels. After completing the program, the 30 students can then obtain employment opportunities in bakeries or hotels in Shanghai and all across China.

In order to increase its financial stability, SYB is now moving towards a social enterprise model, and has opened half-day bakery classes, bread & pastry catering, and technical consulting services to individuals and companies wishing to contribute to the success and sustainability of the program.

SYB is managed by a dynamic French-Chinese team, and operates under the governance of Chi Heng Foundation.
