Career Summary

The Hospitality, Lodging, and Tourism Youth Apprenticeship Program was designed with the needs of employers in mind. Employers have expressed concern finding workers who possess basic “soft-skills,” which is often a prerequisite for success in a customer service-oriented field. Additionally, hospitality careers are stereotyped as low-wage and entry-level with little opportunity for advancement. Faced with a shrinking pipeline of workers, this program was revised with representatives from hospitality, lodging, and tourism services associations to meet the needs of you, our hospitality, lodging, and tourism employers.
