SLHTA Apprenticeship Programme — Enrolment Now Open!
The SLHTA Hospitality Apprenticeship Programme for Youth (HAPY) is an initiative by the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association Inc. which targets unemployed youth between the ages of 18-35 years with a keen interest in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry in Saint Lucia. The programme was launched on December 10, 2014 and has enrolled over 550 youth over the past four years.
This week, the SLHTA met with a new cadre of passionate, young persons trained under the Community, Family and Youth Resilience (CFYR) Basic Life and Employability Skills (BLES) training initiative. The support for the young persons trained under this USAID-funded project will ensure over a dozen youth from the Marchand community can access apprenticeship opportunities at SLHTA member properties. If you know someone who is unemployed and interested in career exploration through HAPY, have them call SLHTA on 453-1811 for more information.
The apprenticeship project is funded by the SLHTA Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF).
