Hospitality Institute

The Hospitality Institute is an addition of CHGW’s existing workforce readiness curriculum created in partnership with Accenture, which provides an opportunity for youth to gain critical career skills through skills training, career coaching, and experiential learning. The six-week curriculum includes 29 hours of classroom and web-based professional skills training followed by on-the-job shadowing. After completing the six-week course, participants will have obtained industry recognized Guest Service Gold and ServSafe Food Handler Manager Certifications. Our unique partnership with Grads of Life connects youth with employers helping them to get the interview and land employment.
