MCLEAN, Va. - Each day, Hilton Team Members spread the light and warmth of hospitality all over the globe - not only to guests, but also to their local communities. This May, the company hosted its third annual Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality Month. Throughout the month, Hilton properties and corporate offices hosted a variety of events to raise awareness on the diverse career opportunities available through the hospitality industry.

Hilton hosted 1,100+ events, contributing 78,300+ volunteer hours and reaching more than 102,600 youth, during the month of May. This impact brings Hilton one step closer to achieving their goal of reaching 1 million young people by 2019 through its Open Doors commitment - helping youth prepare for the future and reach their full potential.
