We are Fam-i-ly
As Sister Sledge said in the “We Are Family” song, “Living life is fun and we’ve just begun…”
At Hospitality International Training Academy (HIT) we are living life and having fun. The word is spreading and an unprecedented number of students are going through our classes and beginning successful careers in the culinary field. We have been invited by several agencies to train their charges and giving them skills that will redirect their lives from being wards of the state to being taxpayers.
Not all of our graduates have had life struggles, but many have. We work with juveniles as well as adults. Many of the juveniles are minor offenders but who hare headed down the highway toward the adult penal system. By providing them with skills and opportunities to use those skills upon graduation, we offer them an off-ramp from that highway. In today’s society, people who struggle with issues are often knocked down by the challenges in life. Our mantra is, “It is no sin to be knocked down. It is only a sin to not get back up.”
Our program provides youthful offenders as well as adult offenders an opportunity to get back up. Our outstanding cadre of faculty teaches their charges the finer points of the courses taken, but we don’t stop there. We bring in experts in the field of Human Resources to discuss character, perception, and rules that, when properly applied, give them an opportunity to succeed in the workplace. We give them the mechanical skills as well as demonstrating the people skills needed to become successful in their profession and in life.
The results are gratifying. Our graduates leave the program with a certificate that speaks to their ability to do a job, and upwards of 90% also complete a national certification in the food business, thereby enhancing their opportunities for a career in the culinary arts.
We consider our students, teaching staff, and administrative personnel, as well as our advisors, to be part of the HIT family. Join our family and increase your opportunity for success.
