Get Involved with the IRA Educational Foundation

The generous support provided by sponsors and volunteers is essential to the IRAEF's continued  work with ProStart® students to build Illinois' hospitality workforce. You can get involved as a sponsor, volunteer, partner, and more.

Due to COVID-19, industry events, trainings and professional development activities are canceled, but our priority is still student engagement!

Please consider using your creativity and experience to be part of our Student Video Series! We welcome industry professionals to tour their foodservice operation, highlight what tools are in their roll-up, provide a cooking demo, or anything else that would be helpful and exciting for students!

You can find additional details HERE

Please submit the below form to let us know how you would like to be involved with IRAEF. Contact Kristen Hodges, Executive Director, at for more information.
