Free Training Program For Culinary, Hospitality Jobs In Asbury Park

Admissions are open for the Salt School.

Read, set, apply NOW.

The Salt School is accepting up to 200 applicants—expanding on past years’ admissions—to its hospitality training program, which will be used to staff Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park.

David Bowd, of Salt Hotels and the developer, iStar, is launching the third Salt School, a free hospitality training program aimed at providing training for jobs at the bowling alley-turned-music-venue, reopening Memorial Day Weekend, as well as for other jobs in the community. Asbury Lanes will offer a full-service diner open 24/7, organizers say.

The purpose of the Salt School program is not only for participants to receive free training, but to gain employment. Those completing the program will participate in a graduation and attend a job fair at which businesses will be recruiting.

Curriculum focuses on food and beverage management, culinary and bar trends, event planning, marketing, social media and other components of the culinary and hospitality industries. Speakers/instructors in this year’s training program include Daniel Holzman, founder and chef of the internationally recognized Meatball Shop restaurants.

The application process is open now through Saturday, March 31. Salt School training begins on Saturday, April 14 and continues on Saturdays through the month; graduation is Sunday, April 29. The job fair will be held on Sunday, May 6 at the Asbury Hotel, at which local hospitality businesses will be interviewing Salt School graduates. The training will take place at The Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County, 1201 Monroe Ave in Asbury Park.
