The hotel’s team, through the company’s globally-recognized ‘Succeed Through Service’ mentorship program, will deliver a staff-developed curriculum to children aged 11-13 years old at the Al Tarbiya Alijtimaeyah Albaneen School for Orphans.
The aim will be to promote character building, introduce them to real world role models and provide them with some of the resources necessary for them to lead happier, healthier and more productive lives. The modules to be taught are designed.
The modules include career exploration module, which is designed to introduce the students to possible careers in the hospitality industry and educate them on what it takes to get prepared in addition to life skills training modules that include successful presentation skills, which will teach the children how to overcome presentation anxiety.
Another module, the power of teamwork, will demonstrate what teamwork is, why teams are essential to success and what the essential elements of a successful team are.

These aims are achieved through community involvement and inspiring young people to study and do their best," the hotel stated.
