Eventhough we have not written anything since our apprentices have returned from France last July, we have been very busy working on the chateau, programs and projects. Our five “kids” came back from France enchanted and completely changed. The pilot program has been such a success, it has exceeded our expectation and the kids have been examplary. Now at least 2 of them , Sharon and Abraham, are ready to continue with the Chateau Vert full nine month apprenticeship. Myles is persuing his dream of becoming a chef, working as a sous-chef in a fine restaurant in Pasadena, Victor working full time and training to become a phlebotomist and Mike working as a full time employee for Hillside helping foster youth in art projects
