The Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation provides...
To sustain the heart of the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation's mission, we need you. With so many ways to give back with the OHF, it's easy to find something that works for your budget and schedule.
Be a guest speaker
Guest speakers give students a glimpse at what working in the restaurant business is all about. Spend one or more class periods in a classroom sharing your personal career journey, perspective on the industry or providing an overview on a specific topic.
Host a field trip site
Accommodate and lead a group of as many as 25 students for a tour of your facility. Field trips typically last one-and-a-half hours to three hours, depending on if lunch is provided.
Host job shadowing
Open your doors to a student or a small group of students for a half or full shift. Students will shadow various key positions within the organization to gain a well-rounded perspective of what working in the business entails.
Provide a worksite
Serve as an employer, hiring a hospitality student for part-time or full-time employment. Or provide a site for an internship opportunity, which is supported by OH&LA in a variety of capacities.
