Program Overview

Colorado ProStart is a high school hospitality education program conducted by the Colorado Restaurant Association Foundation, The Colorado Restaurant Association, and the Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association. Its exquisitely designed, two-year foodservice and hospitality management curriculum is offered to high school juniors and seniors who demonstrate a real passion or even passing interest for the industry.

Colorado ProStart offers its students the skills and knowledge that are required to excel in the foodservice and hospitality industries. We recognize that combining education with experience creates the perfect “recipe” for building futures as students compete for success throughout their lives. The program offers classroom experience, real world experience, excellent educators and mentors, a National Certificate of Achievement, scholarships, and other elements to prep them for the years ahead.
