On Friday, November 13, the Aloft Brooklyn Hotel & HKSB's Employment Services department collaborated to host its first Mentor Day program - allowing five individuals who are legally blind to shadow each hotel department head for the day.

Each participant was paired with an Aloft department head and had the opportunity to not only shadow but actually engage in the hotel’s daily activities. At the end of the day, an Aloft representative said “we learned more from them than they learned from us.” Thank you Aloft for providing this amazing training opportunity!
