A Path To Success

A Path To Success

Art of Hospitality Path to Success is a not-for-profit school dedicated to providing hospitality training and career paths for opportunity youth, the unemployed and underemployed. Students will gain the requisite skills for positions in hospitality with a focus toward entry-level front and back of house careers. The curriculum will also include job readiness, financial literacy, and service excellence as well as practical knowledge gained through structured learning experiences. In partnership with the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association (NJRHA), we strive to have our training and certification programs to be a sought-after badge of accomplishment by our contemporaries that we have developed strong relationships with through the NJRHA. All of Landmark’s facilities will be involved in the training program.  Through education and training, we strive to remove the stigma that surrounds the industry while providing an opportunity for growth and sustainable careers in an exciting and lucrative industry.

All of Landmark’s facilities will be involved in the training program through education, training, and paid internships and mentorships we strive to remove front and back of house careers. Art of Hospitality will also advance people already in hospitality
