• Ready for American Hospitality - RAH

    Since January of 2014 I have led a collaborative service learning program between the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitlaity Management and the African Community Center, a refugee resettlement agency in Denver. The program, known as, the Ready for American Hospitality training program or RAH has served over 225 refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants living in Metro Denver. Over 30 employers have hired RAH graduates and the program has continued to work alongside community stakeholders to support folks through the integration process. Over the past few years RAH has garnered the support of a primary employer in Metro Denver and continues to be contacted by employers across the area seeking out RAH graduates.  

    The RAH program has existed since 2012 and in that time it has been recognized several times over for its innovative pedagogical form. RAH could not exist without the support of the State of Colorado - refugee service providers (CRSP), ECDC/African Community Center of Denver, The J.W. Marriott Foundation, The Hilton Foundation, The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at DU, Skyport Co., and countless other refugee and immigrant organizations in Metro Denver.
