Young Workers Get Boost from Training Program(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Students from all three cohorts of the Hospitality Express 4 Success program graduated January 29 and received their industry-recognized certifications and completion certificates.  The program provided a 15-week training program operated by a partnership including the Community Services Agency, The Training Source and Prince George’s Community College, with job placement activities designed to help students get good initial jobs in the growing hospitality industry upon program completion.  “The boost this program gave these 30 young people will help them launch self-sustaining careers with some of our area’s best hospitality employers,” said CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy. “We really appreciate and thank our partner organizations as well as the Community Foundation’s Greater Washington Workforce Development Collaborative, the Meyer Foundation and the Washington Area Women’s Foundation for supporting our program.” Many of the students have already landed jobs and job development activities continue through the end of the grant period. - photo by Andrea Thompson
