Kids learn ropes of hospitality industry at Pointe summer program
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -
School is almost out for most Valley kids, but that doesn't mean the learning is over.
Many kids are spending their days learning about the hospitality industry at the Pointe at Tapatio Cliffs. It's part of Youth in Hospitality Month, Hilton Worldwide's global career event showcasing, to young people, the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry.
The resort hosted the special event for children ages 12-18. Resort team members give the kids a behind-the-scenes look at career opportunities in each department - from housekeeping and culinary to front desk and reservations.
This event is part of a global program that encourages team members to donate their time and expertise to help young people achieve stability and bring hope to their communities, preparing them for a brighter future.
"Hilton Worldwide has got many events going on around the world with kids to help them learn about the hospitality industry and jobs that they can hopefully be doing for us in the future," says Rose Walz, director of human resources.
