My Life Project at The Santa Clara Hotel
Wednesday 31 October 2018
The Pies Descalzos Foundation developed the My Life Project, aimed at helping students develop life skills that will allow them to make conscious decisions that will guide their future and their role in different environments. With the support of the My Life Project, students identify the qualities and abilities needed to pursue their preferred vocation within higher education.
In the development of the project, contact was made with both academic and business entities so that the students can have direct experiences with fields they could study at a university. By participating in these events, students gain a better understanding of their professional preferences.

The Santa Clara Hotel, an ally of the Pies Descalzos Foundation, has opened its doors for students to interact directly with the service areas offered in the tourism sector such as reception, table and bar, chambermaid, kitchen, pastry, bakery, and maintenance, among others.
The students learned about the different spaces of the hotel: restaurants, guest rooms, spa, gym, swimming pool, electrical and technical repair rooms and had the opportunity to encounter the historical wealth found in every corner of the hotel. The employees in each of the departments shared their experience and their work, helping the students decide which career would be most in line with their interests and skills.
This meeting was very significant for the students, who showed increased interest in certain careers after learning more about the options open to them in the different sectors of the hotel. We thank Hotel Santa Clara for opening their doors for the benefit of quality education.
