將才學堂攜手「孩子的書屋」 助高關懷孩子翻轉人生 台東孩子闖出冠軍餅乾夢 原創最佳在地點心暖心上市

LIN_7107.jpg由平均不到17歲的高關懷孩子們所創作、讓台東知名公益團體「孩子的書屋」創辦人陳爸╴陳俊朗生前寄予厚望的「酒釀洛神長頸鹿夾心餅」,去年驚豔產官學界評審、拿下頂新和德文教基金會「將才學堂烘焙競賽」最佳在地點心獎項後,現在將回書屋育成中心「黑孩子黑咖啡」及所屬的電商通路上市了!

頂新和德文教基金會創辦人魏應充多年前到台東向陳爸請益時,陳爸提到很多孩子不應該以成績好壞定論,而是需要有另一條輸送帶,為他們找到另一片天,這就是技職。兩人理念一拍即合,魏應充也透過頂新和德文教基金會從2017年起推動「將才學堂烘焙技職教育計畫」,與書屋在內的許多公益團體合作,免費提供高關懷孩子烘焙技職訓練。學成後不僅輔導報考丙級證照、還透過烘焙大賽及就業媒合等管道,協助高關懷孩子用這項技能尋找人生出路。

LIN_7190張同學等5名書屋孩子之前歷經10個月的培訓後,創作研發出「酒釀洛神長頸鹿夾心餅」,去年不僅一鳴驚人拿下年度競賽冠軍餅乾獎項,今年在布列德麵包店公益上市2個月期間,銷量也達近萬個。為讓高關懷孩子可透過自己的努力實踐夢想,頂新和德文教基金會繼8月協助年度冠軍吐司作品於高雄一勾堂上市後,現又推動「酒釀洛神長頸鹿夾心餅」回台東黑孩子黑咖啡在地上市。

餅乾創作者之一的張同學,從小學業成績不盡理想,再加上破百公斤的「重量級」體型,原本相當缺乏自信;進入書屋後,才在老師的陪伴中,開始融入群體、並且變得敢於接受各種挑戰,包含單車環島、獨木舟航行等;之後他更在陳爸的鼓勵下進入將才學堂烘焙技職教育班,最後從一路不被看好的孩子,成為一個烘焙好手,現已進入烘焙相關科系就讀。

張同學回想:「當初加入將才學堂,並沒有想太多,真正開始上烘焙課後,第一次自己從麵粉、麵團到做出成品時,那一刻心裡滿滿的感動與成就感,讓我第一次感受到,我也能做到。未來我想成為一個專業烘焙師傅,開一間專屬於自己的店。」

回想起那段練習的時光,書屋孩子們紛紛表示:「真的很辛苦,不只餅乾,還有吐司、含餡麵包等等,每天從天亮到天黑都待在烘焙教室中,但也因為有這些辛苦的過程,在競賽中獲得冠軍的那一刻,心中的成就與感動完全無法言喻,那一刻,我們相信原來努力真的能夠實現夢想。」

陳爸的大兒子、現任孩子的書屋基金會董事長兼執行長陳彥翰說,這款冠軍餅乾能夠在地上市,對這些高關懷孩子是很大的肯定與支持,讓他們明白夢想真的可以憑藉努力來實踐。「非常感謝將才學堂及頂新和德文教基金會創辦人魏應充先生,相信將才學堂教給孩子們的技能與人生觀念定會為他們在往後的生命中,帶來截然不同的旅程。」

陳彥翰說,很可惜父親沒來的及看到餅乾在布列德販售的盛況,這次我們把它帶回黑咖啡及我們自己的電商平台,希望能讓更多民眾嚐到它獨一無二的味道。書屋的夥伴們也會延續陳爸精神,持續照顧這些高關懷、偏鄉孩童。

「將才學堂烘焙技職教育計畫」目前已在各地培訓出 300 多位擁有一技之長的高關懷孩子,其中將近200位的孩子接受超過10個月、360小時專業技職訓練結業,更有超過半數以上的學員成功取得麵包或蛋糕丙級證照,並陸續投入相關產業銜接就業或繼續就學。

為了鼓勵孩子擁有更多的自信與勇氣,將才學堂也舉辦圓夢計畫支持小將及優秀學子赴海外參賽,其中將才學堂學員2018前往韓國參賽獲得兩金一銀一銅,今年再創新紀錄奪下兩金兩銀的好成績;另外基金會廣邀徵件,遴選支持10位優秀學子到海外參賽,也陸續在美、德、馬、泰等國的國際一級競賽糖藝等靜態展示項目中摘下總計5金2銀3銅。
