DUBAI, UAE - Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort & Residences is gearing up to host a wide-eyed batch of students at its 8th Hilton Junior Academy on the 18th and 19th July, from 9am until 5pm. The annual summer programme is geared toward children between the ages of six and twelve with a flair for hospitality and a future in management.

About 70 juniors will embark on a fun-filled learning curve this term. During the programme, the juniors will participate in mini break-out sessions that go behind the scenes of key hotel operations including Front Desk, Kitchen and Housekeeping. Each one-day schedule will be closely supervised by elected team members from the hotel and will include fun activities such as welcoming guests at check-in; cooking up a cup cake storm in the little chefs’ kitchen; and learning some valuable tidying techniques with our housekeeping team. The programme will also include snack breaks and lunch.

The Hilton Junior Academy will culminate with a Prize Giving and Closing Ceremony during which the aspiring hoteliers will be presented with exciting goodie bags, certificates and photographs memories of this unforgettable opportunity.

This year, the team from Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort & Residences is keen to get the whole family involved; sign up for the exclusive ‘All Day Access’ package, which includes lunch at the Oceana restaurant, plus beach and pool access for the entire day. Whilst at the hotel, why not take full advantage of the Balinese inspired spa, specialising in facials, beauty treatments and massages, ensuring a day replete with rest and relaxation.

Christian H. Muhr, General Manager, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort & Residences, said, “We started the Hilton Junior Academy back in 2002 and today it is a successful annual programme that sees children from all backgrounds come together for a day of fun learning with our team.”

“We are all looking forward to welcoming this year’s students and who knows, we may be recruiting some of the juniors in 15 years’ time!”

50% of the proceeds from the Hilton Junior Academy will go towards Hilton’s International charity – Hilton in the Community Foundation dedicated to the Disaster Relief and supporting emergencies and longer term development grants.
