Take two: Agak Agak opens second intake of their Apprenticeship Program
Help Agak Agak help underprivileged youth find a career in the F&B industry with the initiative’s Apprenticeship Program—now recruiting

We love the food, the idea and the duo behind it. If you're unfamiliar with Agak Agak, then you clearly have not been to APW Bangsar where the restaurant is located. A social initiative that's modelled after Jamie Oliver's Fifteen, Ili Sulaiman and Basira Yeusuff started Agak Agak to help underprivileged youths find a passion, kickstart it and teach them the ropes of working in the culinary world.

Recruited talents are taught everything—from cooking to kitchen service to sales and marketing—which will groom their 'skills and a display of character' to help them 'navigate into the workforce and the real world'.

The Apprenticeship Program is a year-long commitment but as the space is small, they could only take in four people 'per intake'. The good news is they're now ready to mould the minds (and hands) of the next cohort. Spread the word or if you know anyone who has the passion for this industry, reach out to them at infoagakagak@gmail.com.
