Partner Opportunity: Support the 2014 LEI Career Development Program
This spring, the HTA is once again partnering with ClimbHI, a local non-profit organization, to offer the third annual LEI (Leadership, Exploration and Inspiration) Program, a career development opportunity for high school students statewide. It provides students and teachers an opportunity to tour hotels, meet with representatives in various hospitality departments, and attend a career fair to learn more about working in the tourism industry.
Last year, 500 students from across the state participated in the events on Oahu and Maui. This year, ClimbHI will be expanding its LEI program to Hawaii Island. The programs will take place on Maui (Apr. 9), Oahu (Apr. 11) and Hawaii Island (Apr. 17) and will welcome more than 700 student participants throughout the state.
The HTA encourages industry partners to get involved in this career development opportunity through hosting hotel visits, career fair participation or volunteer support. For more information about these opportunities, please contact Julie Morikawa, president of ClimbHI at email@example.com.
