Using the best insights and experience of industry partners, we launched a back- to-basics training program to introduce our students to benchmarks for service standards in food and beverage and general hospitality services. “So You Think You Can Serve” is designed as a comprehensive, real-world approach to service techniques and customer relations – everything from professional etiquette to guest contact skills and service recovery. We help with interviewing skills, resume preparation, and introduce participants, many of whom need a hand up or a door opened, to the benefits that a career in the hospitality industry can provide. Many graduates of our program have gone on to be placed in positions throughout the region, with the assistance of 2H2E partners and sponsors.
Our mentors help our students connect with hospitality careers that they might not otherwise have access to. Sharing their own personal paths through life, our mentors guide their mentees through celebration, support, and encouragement.
We offer quarterly career fairs expanding on best practices professionally and personally.
Ages 16+ are welcome.
