Hilton Tokyo, IsraAID to invite Fukushima students to take part in internship
Hilton Tokyo, IsraAID – a relief and development international aid agency from Israel—and Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Japan will invite students from Fukushima Nami and Fukushima Futaba Sho-yo high schools who were affected by the March 11 triple disaster to the Hilton Tokyo this winter to participate in the Hilton Internship Series to receive various job experience exposure and leadership training.
Multiple weeklong internships are scheduled and will commence from Jan 5.
Hilton Tokyo has been partnering with IsraAID in number of projects designed to support continued post disaster recovery activities in the Tohoku region, offering accommodation for counselors and therapists of IsraAID coming to Japan, sending the hotel’s team members regularly as volunteers to the affected regions, visiting temporary housing complexes to assist IsraAID with various activities including Hilton Cookie Therapy – a fun and delicious Hilton original therapy. The hotel also organized the “Hilton Hospitality BBQ” for 1,000 temporary housing residents in Watari and Shinchi town in Miyagi Prefecture last June.
The winter internship commences with orientation covering the modern global hotelier, including the philosophy of hospitality, basic service training as well as service English lessons. During the internship, students will have an opportunity to work at various departments, such as housekeeping, restaurants, front office and kitchen operations. Each student will also have an experienced Hilton team member as a buddy and mentor over the internship and will be able to continue to communicate with them post training when they return to Tohoku. In the evening, students will engage in workshops covering leadership, innovation and social responsibility organized by IsraAID.
