Flyer, Course Overview, and Application


In the last days of June, nearly twenty young men and women traveled to the Alaska Vocational Technical Center (AVTEC) in Seward to embark on a week-long hospitality and restaurant training program. For eight hours a day, participants dove headfirst into the finer points of hospitality operations. Students examined front-of-the-house procedures, exploring customer service, seating strategies, serving considerations, and working in tandem with the kitchen. They also analyzed back-of-the-house operations - starting with the supply chain and methodically moving through the systems that put food on plates. A genuinely successful week ended with job offers and changed lives.
