Foster, John; Gipe, Charlie; Friedrich, Alan; Prekopa, Stephanie
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v86 n6 p52-57 Sep 2011
It takes one sweet company to make an industry collaboration work! Hershey Entertainment and Resorts is that company! The company is best known for its resort and entertainment entities. As background, it is important to understand the philanthropic history of the company, Milton Hershey, and the town he built on chocolate. Milton Hershey left behind more than just a chocolate empire; his philanthropy lives on today in the programs his company funds to help young people have brighter futures. Hershey Entertainment and Resorts sponsors a program that targets secondary students who have an interest in pursuing a career in the culinary field. The program, "A Taste of Your Future--One Sweet Culinary Experience," puts a razor-sharp edge on the associated skills needed to be successful in this field, such as teamwork, collaboration and leadership. The program sponsors included Sysco of Central Pennsylvania, Buca di BEPPO Italian Restaurant, Golden Corral, Buffets Inc., Black Bear Fundraising, and Singer.
