The Hotel Training Center (HTC) provides skills training and job placement services for under employed and unemployed individuals seeking entry to the hospitality industry and incumbent workers seeking skills upgrades or advancement within the industry.
With SkillWorks funding, HTC will increase its training capacity, add individualized career counseling services, and enhance educational offerings to satisfy the critical demand for well-trained employees in the growing Boston hotel and food service sector. In particular, HTC will build out its pre-GED, GED and post-secondary preparation programs for workers.
Participants who graduate from the pre-employment training program will start at positions paying at least $15.23/hour. Incumbent workers will train for advancement in culinary, food service, and guest service positions paying $40,000 to $70,000 annually.
HTC plans to serve 565 participants over five years.
