“My experience has been great. Great customer service. Great tools and reading material. And I’m where I’m at now because of completing the STRIVE program!” – Ryan, STRIVE in Hospitality participant
Ryan is smiling after completing a task in the dining area of the Embassy Suites in West Palm Beach.
