Terry Parker students train to be hotel moguls

Updated: Oct 19, 2018

Sept. 10, 2018 - You could learn a lot from a Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront employee: Computers, Event Planning, Culinary Arts, and Business Management!



These are some of the real life experiences that 30 Terry Parker students will get from their new mentors, Hyatt employees, through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida Beyond School Walls program.


Beyond School Walls introduces our students to the workplace by giving them an opportunity to get first-hand experience in the corporate world. Through relationships with “corporate bigs,” mentees or “littles” experience what it means to work for a corporation, learn business etiquette and observe what educational requirements are needed to achieve professional success.
