About the Academy
The Aramark Building Community Academy is a forum to enhance the operational and program excellence of community centers in the areas of community health and wellness and employment. In its first year, the Academy’s focus is on helping people live healthier lifestyles and will expand over time to include helping adults and teens secure meaningful employment.
The Academy provides center leaders and professionals with resources and tools to increase their effectiveness and capacity to meet the needs of families in diverse neighborhoods. Managed in partnership with the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, the Academy is a component of Aramark Building Community, the company's strategic philanthropic and volunteer program dedicated to enriching the lives of vulnerable families around the world. We couple our employees' unique nutrition and culinary, job readiness, and facilities management skills with the strengths of each local community center to help tackle the widespread challenges of unemployment, rising costs of living, and health-related issues such as obesity and nutrition-related chronic disease.
