The program runs over two years and includes beside theoretical education a lot of practice within the classes
and serving the guests. As an extra on job training we send our students for a three months internship to first
class hotels and resorts all over Cambodia. Since 2007 more than 500 students have completed the 2 years
rogram. At present, the hotel school has150 students(90 first year, 60 second year).

The Don Bosco Hotel School responds to the needs of the poorest of Cambodian youth by offering them a high
quality professional education that prepares them for work and for life, with benefit not only to Cambodia but
potentially to other societies as well. Candidates from the Don Bosco Hotel and School are eminently employable
in a globalized world. Don Bosco Hotel and School, therefore, sees its mission as a direct response to poverty
through holistic professional education, which transforms its students, reaches out to their families, and helps to
improve society. It does this by appealing to the inner gifts of the young, and by emphasizing spiritual and
human values of generosity, joy, responsible service, belief in self and believe in God. In being our guest in the
hotel belonging to the Don Bosco Hotel School you help the Cambodian youth as the income generated is
reinvested in the students' education.
