Project activities were as follows: (1) developed a handbook to define the tech prep experience and guide committee members on how tech prep can be a valuable asset to students and hospitality employers; (2) secured planning stage agreements with three high schools; (3) established an advisory board; (4) established ties with community outreach organizations; (5) developed and conducted a survey that rated competencies for entry-level hospitality positions; and (6) initiated contact with two high schools to start the planning stage for the travel and tourism component. Extensive appendixes include the following: survey results, newspaper article highlighting program success, brochure on Illinois Tech Prep, mission statement of the Hospitality Tech Prep Team, outline of advantages to and expectations of area employers, advisory board implementation topics, hotel-motel/food service position descriptions, first draft of skills for hotel-motel management/food service administration, and model tech prep education/private sector partnership agreement.
