This summer, Birmingham-based nonprofit agency Triumph Services is running a summer program at the Candlewood Suites in Hoover to boost employment opportunities in the hospitality industry. Triumph Services is partnering with Intercontinental Hotels Group through the IHG Academy.
Triumph Services partners with more than 100 local businesses to support adults with developmental disabilities in employment and independent living. The IHG Academy will help them achieve this goal.
Participants spend six weeks in a paid internship in Hoover, learning skills and gaining experience for possible future employment with the Intercontinental Hotels Group. At the end of the six weeks, participants will have the opportunity to interview for a job with the group.
Training focuses on all aspects of the hospitality industry from housekeeping and maintenance to sales and hotel management.
