“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. Like other hotels in the area, they partner with Easterseals to provide hands-on training opportunities to our STRIVE participants. Upon graduation, participants like Ryan go on to secure full-time employment with similar establishments in the hospitality industry.
