Upcoming TPC Grantee Events

BEST Hospitality Training

Student graduations (Dudley Square site)
BEST hosts job seeker training graduation events about four times a year, usually in the spring/summer. Graduations generally fall on a Friday at midday.

Mock Banquet (Medford near Wellington T Station)
At the end of March 2018 BEST will host another Mock Banquet designed to allow students completing a 70-hour intensive class in banquet service to use their new skills, enabling them to be better prepared to obtain work as banquet servers at partner hotels. BEST has invited TPC members to play the role of guest in this simulated banquet, during which we will be served a three-course meal…some real, some made of paper, and several wine varietals…made of water!
