The Colorado Restaurant Foundation is proud to be one of the few states selected to implement this new program launched through a partnership with the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation. The Hospitality Sector Registered Apprenticeship (HSRA) is the industry’s first-ever earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship program, and is approved by the U.S. Department of Labor. The HSRA aims to create career opportunities for the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality workforce. Colorado Restaurant Foundation President Mary Mino states, “We strongly believe that given the employee shortage situation in this state and across the country, this new Registered Apprenticeship program will have a powerful impact on professionalizing the industry through employee recruitment and retention.” If you’re interested in learning more about getting involved with the apprenticeship program, contact the CRF. 303-830-2972, firstname.lastname@example.org.
