At the end of last month we completed another successful round of our jobs training program, GET SET. Twelve eager and enthused veterans with barriers to employment completed the two weeks of hospitality training and job shadowing. We are proud to state that 100% of our participants graduated. All of the students were fully engaged throughout the training.
We recently moved into the placement phase of the program. So far, we have received word that one of our participants is employed full time. Several others are working with our partner, First Steps Staffing, to find employment, and sill others are attending job fairs with major hotel chains. We are hopeful that they will all obtain full-time employment.
Thank you so much to IHG for financially supporting this program. Additionally, we would like to say a special thank you to our staff, each of our amazing guest facilitators, and all of the industry professionals that gave their time and their heart to this program. We look forward to sharing with you more updates as each of our participants finds employment.
