St. Kitts Marriott Resort a friend of the community

Resort in St Kitts Works To Help those Community Members With Special Needs”

Cotton Thomas Comprehensive SchoolBasseterre, St. Kitts – This St. Kitts hotel is leading the pack by providing assistance where needed and educating those in their community.

The St. Kitts Marriott Resort & the Royal Beach Casino has supported their local community since it opened its doors in 2003. They have continued to do so throughout the years however 2013 being their 10th Anniversary has been seen the creation of a more extensive and in-depth plan of activities. The most recent recipient of these efforts is the CottonThomasComprehensiveSchool, which is the school for children with special needs on the island.

This school was once referred to as the “Special Education Unit”, however the name was changed to honor the educators who have dedicated their career to assisting those in the community with special needs. The St. Kitts Marriott Resort is partnering with the school’s Community Based Vocational Training, which provides students valuable hands-on experience, as a final step in their courses prior to graduation.

Three students have joined the resort and they all display a keen interest in the housekeeping department. With this in mind they have each been placed with individual associates and trained to perform and master specific tasks from March 25, 2013 to June 25, 2013.

“The St. Kitts Marriott Resort is indeed grateful for this partnership as we are an equal opportunity employer,” says Shani Juman-Yassin, Director of Human Resources. “We believe that all can play an important role no matter their individual circumstances.”

Marriott International has a proud tradition of supporting the cities, towns and neighborhoods around the globe that it calls home. Marriott’s “Spirit to Serve” is an intensely hands-on philosophy, based on a 75 year legacy of supporting the communities where it does business.
