Art of Hospitality | Educate the Block

The Mission of the Foundation is to support the needs and dreams of hospitality workers by offering career paths, growth opportunities, and propelling career advancement while offering financial support. We are committed to acting as a safety net for hospitality workers in Hudson and Union Counties and believe that the hospitality industry is one that provides endless opportunities for all. It is an industry which has no bias, and an individual’s achievements are limitless as long as they possess a willingness to learn and have a passion for giving. We include a paid internship in hospitality, full-time internships at our farms, and employment advancement classes and career coaching.
