Del Monte Hotel Group

The Del Monte Hotel Group hosts the first workshop-to-work Project SEARCH® program in the nation. The classroom is located at the elegant Hilton Garden Inn in Rochester, NY, where the interns receive employment training preparation. Participants complete their internship rotations at four different Del Monte hotel locations including Del Monte Lodge, Courtyard Brighton, Hilton Garden Inn at College Town, and the Rochester Airport Marriott Hotel. The on-site team consists of an instructor and two employment specialists who deliver the educational and employment training to the interns. Project SEARCH® prepares participants for competitive, integrated employment.

A Typical Day

The program is run Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Interns begin their day at the Hilton Garden Inn. After a job readiness session in the training room, interns either stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, or travel to one of three other Del Monte hotels to participate in their internship. Interns take a half hour lunch with their co-workers at the hotel and finish their training at 2:00 p.m. At this time, the interns gather at their internship sites to debrief with Adult Project SEARCH® staff or review curriculum before departing at 2:30 p.m.
