The program will be bringing over 400 high school students into Waikiki from Oahu as well as Kauai, the Big Island, Molokai, and Lana’i. ClimbHI will be hosting a separate LEI program on Maui for 120 students from that island. The day will consist of the following:
9:15am-10:30am: Leadership and inspiration through guest speakers (Mayor and Governor attended last year) and Hawaiian culture/sense of place trainings at the Hawaii Convention Center
11am-2pm: Students get divided up at 11 different hotels for an overview of the hotel industry including a dining etiquette piece for lunch.
2pm-3:30pm: Students return to the convention center for a career fair to expose them to the variety of roles in the hospitality industry and post-secondary educational opportunities.
