• Hotel Bootcamp - FREE Virtual Training Program

    THE RI HOSPITALITY ASSOCIATION, East Bay Community Action Program, and The Greater Newport County Chamber of Commerce are proud to offer a free, virtual Hotel and Hospitality Training Program the week of April 12, 2021.


    East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), the Rhode Island Hospitality Association (RIHA) and the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce are collaborating to present a virtual training-to-employment program in April for area youth ages 18-24, offering guaranteed job placement upon successful completion of the program.
    The one-week training will be held online on Zoom beginning April 12th , Monday through Friday, from 2:30-5:30 pm, and it is open to youth, ages 18-24, who meet eligibility criteria such as low-income requirements. Priority will be given to out-of-school youth; however, high school seniors who are on track to graduate in June are also eligible.

    Training topics will include: "First Impressions," " Lasting Impressions," and "Hospitality the 3rd Language," which examines 6 key components of service: trust, conflict, accountability, commitment, communication, and results. Emphasis is placed on how guests in the hospitality industry are at the center of it all.
