The entire Honolulu branch of the Bertholf Consulting team volunteered their time to help out with LEI Day in partnership with the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA).

LEI (Lead, Expose, Inspire) is an annual workforce development exposure event provided by ClimbHI, the Hawaii Tourism Authority and Hawaii’s local tourist and hospitality industry.

The program began in 2012 with 300 Hawaii high school students spending a day learning about the hospitality industry and the value of graduating from high school and going on to pursue a post-secondary education. During the course of the payday loans now program the students meet, learn, and experience job opportunities that the hospitality industry can provide. Students also receive exposure on filling out job/college applications, resumes, personal finance, and support resources.
