Education Foundation

Building Talent for the Hospitality Industry.

Founded in 1995, the mission of the KRHA Educational Foundation is committed to educate and grow a qualified workforce, and enrich our current industry.  From helping high school students get started on a restaurant career, to industry training and development. The workforce is our purpose and our passion.

Career Opportunities & Pathways

The KRHAEF's ProStart program reaches more than 2,500 students at 35 high schools across Kansas.  ProStart provides students with the training they need to be college and career ready.    


High school educators are shaping the future of the industry.  They are passionate and dedicated individuals who provide the knowledge, demonstrate the skills and share the experience needed to be a professional in the restaurant and hospitality industry.  

We partner with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to provide current industry professions with access to educational opportunities and tools designed to elevate their careers and keep them on top of the latest restaurant and foodservice trends.  


To provide access to industry education, we partner with the National Restaurant Association and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association to award co-branded scholarships.
