The outing was part of the prize package offered to the student participants in YES –  a program that united the project-based mentoring of Core Academy, powered by The Rogers Foundation, with the gaming-hospitality expertise of UNLV International Gaming Institute (IGI).

As part of the four-week course designed to enhance the pipeline of homegrown hospitality talent, the students participated in a team competition, with each team imagining, designing and presenting their own world-class integrated resort business and community plans.

Following group presentations earlier this summer, each member of the four-person winning team was surprised with a $10,000 scholarship. Modeled after the IGI and University of Nevada, Reno’s world-class Executive Development Program, the YES program introduced 20 college-bound high school scholars to the hospitality and tourism industry. During the summer program, scholars experienced a number of special opportunities, including interaction with some of the most prominent figures in the hospitality industry, exclusive back-of-house tours and experiential outings, and one-on-one classroom mentoring time – all while discovering the various career opportunities available to them in the hospitality and tourism industry right here in Las Vegas.
