Art of Hospitality Path to Success is a not-for-profit school dedicated to providing hospitality training and career paths for opportunity youth, the unemployed and underemployed. Students will gain the requisite skills for positions in hospitality with a focus toward entry level front and back of house careers. In partnership with the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association (NJRHA), we strive to have our training and certification programs to be a sought-after badge of accomplishment by our contemporaries that we have developed strong relationships with through the NJRHA.  Through education and training we strive to remove the stigma that surrounds the industry while providing opportunity for growth and sustainable careers in an exciting and lucrative industry.

During the eight weeks in classroom training, the curriculum will deliver life skills, financial literacy and industry focused training while students achieve portable and stackable industry recognized credentials. Students will also gain an understanding of nutrition, healthy eating, sustainability and the history of food. The training will culminate with a four week on the job internship where students will be immersed into the hospitality culture to further develop their skills and knowledge. Participants will ascertain the requisite skills to not only secure a position but to thrive and grow within the industry.
