Teaching Teachers on Hawaii’s Hospitality Industry
As a part of the continued efforts to educate and attract Hawaii’s youth to pursue a career in the hospitality industry, the HTA, in partnership with the Department of Education (DOE) Career and Technical Education Office, will be holding workshops for teachers to provide them in-depth knowledge on Hawaii’s largest industry.
“Educating Hawaii’s youth and getting them interested in working in our visitor industry is so important,” said Mike McCartney, president and CEO of the HTA. “We think this workshop will help provide Hawaii’s teachers with first-hand experiences and knowledge on tourism that they can use to educate our future generations.”
Industry executives from various sectors of Hawaii’s visitor industry, such as the HTA, Hawaii Convention Center, Starwood Hawaii, Aulani, Kualoa Ranch, and more, will be presenting to offer insight and provide tools to Hawaii’s educators. The Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association (NaHHA) will also conduct Hawaiian culture and hospitality training.
The workshops are scheduled for June 6-8 and July 18-20.
