Maui Hotel & Lodging Association is excited to announce the biennial Academy of Hospitality & Tourism’s (AOHT) Student Conference!

Where: University of Hawaii Maui College

Our AOHT program is a part of the curriculum at three Maui public high schools (Baldwin, Lāhainaluna & Maui High) and includes approximately 150 students. The program is a successful business/school partnership that prepares students for future careers in the visitor industry through a combination of school-based curricula and work-based experience.

This Student Conference offers an opportunity for AOHT students and their directors to gather with key members of our Visitor Industry, learn and experience hands-on activities such as mock interviews to better prepare them for employment. Attached/Below you will find a tentative schedule of events.

There are a few ways your business can participate:

  • Be a Sponsor of the event for $500 – Your sponsorship will help to defray some of the conference costs while allowing the students to explore career path options through your business exposure at the all-day event.
  • Mock Interviews – at least 20 volunteers are needed to assist as interviewers

This is an excellent way to highlight your business as a supporter of our AOHT program and support workforce development while providing meaningful careers for our youth in the Visitor Industry. For more information, please contact Christine at [email protected] or 244-8625.
