Who better to train teens on how to land their first job than restaurant professionals? Restaurants are the largest employer of youth and provide a first job to nearly 1 out of every 3 Americans! On October 22, restaurant volunteers will train 3,500 teens across 50 high schools – all on a single day. 

The volunteer day, called “Force In Training” or “FIT”, is a program of the California Restaurant Association Foundation. CRAF creates 3 PowerPoint modules for volunteers to use: Land It, Work It, and Lead It. The training covers the basics of landing a job such as interview skills and phone etiquette. It also introduces students to college and career options within the hospitality industry – inspiring students to dream bigger.

Volunteers are still needed! Please sign up and inspire the next generation of restaurant leaders!
