Luxury Hotel to Host “Be Your Own Boss” Etiquette Class on March 22 as Part of its Young Entrepreneurs SoHo Initiative
Buckle up those briefcases and shine those shoes, kids! Trump SoHo® New York, the neighborhood’s only AAA Five Diamond rated hotel, is pleased to announce a joint venture with YoungBiz USA and the hotel’s Young Entrepreneurs SoHo (Y.E.S.) initiative, a unique extension of the brand-wide Trump Kids program, to present a “Be Your Own Boss” etiquette class this month. The seminar marks the first among a series of events co-hosted by Trump SoHo and YoungBiz USA, a financial and business education company for youths that is committed to delivering game-changing learning tools and training for real life entrepreneurial experiences.
“We look forward to partnering with YoungBiz USA to further expand Trump SoHo’s unique and exclusive children’s programming,” said Andreas Oberoi, general manager. “The shared visions of Young Entrepreneurs SoHo and YoungBiz USA will enrich our youngest guests through fun and educational experiences that support a bright future for the next generation.”
Catered towards aspiring children seeking to pioneer their generation’s future through entrepreneurship, “Be Your Own Boss” will take place at Trump SoHo on March 22, 2014 from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. Recommended for those between the ages of eight and 12 years old, children are invited to network among like-minded peers over snacks and drinks while perfecting social skills. Whether in the classroom or on the field, this class will help build and refine etiquette among the inspired generation of go-getters. The event is free and available to members of the Y.E.S. program.
“It is a tremendous opportunity to work with Trump SoHo to grow the entrepreneurial spirit within today’s youth,” said Nick Rodriguez, CEO of YoungBiz USA. “The Trump brand is synonymous with entrepreneurship and our partnership with the Young Entrepreneurs SoHo program will provide a launching pad for young business minds to develop and grow.”
Launched in 2013, Y.E.S. is open to children and teens aged 3 to 17 who are hotel guests, condo owners, or residents of the neighborhood. Prior Y.E.S. gatherings have included a kid’s spa day, cooking class, and holiday craft workshop benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The suite of Y.E.S. benefits includes personalized business cards, complimentary kid’s meals, exclusive invitations, and a quarterly newsletter discussing kid-friendly events around the city, among other perks.* Upon registration, members also receive personalized business cards and a subscription to a quarterly newsletter discussing family-friendly events around New York City.
When staying at the hotel, members receive a monogrammed child-size robe for their initial stay and customized amenities for all future stays at Trump SoHo with treats ranging from milk and cookies to candy buffets. Parents also enjoy the wallet-friendly advantage of waived rollaway and sofa bed fees as well as kids’ breakfast on the house with parents’ in-room dining orders, making Trump SoHo one of the only hotels in New York City to offer this incentive. For stress-free family travel, Trump SoHo has partnered with phil&teds, an innovative and award-winning children’s product line, to provide guests with access to Vibe strollers, Poppy high chairs, and Metro baby backpack carriers for use during their stays.
These exclusive offerings augment the family-friendly services and amenities already available through the existing Trump Kids program, including kiddie cocktails, children’s room service menus, personal attaché service, nanny services, in-room movies, children’s books and board games. Trump SoHo also provides a map of the city with family-friendly sites in lower Manhattan, such as the Nelson A. Rockefeller Park playground, the New York City Fire Museum, the Children’s Museum of the Arts and the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, just a stroll over the historic Brooklyn Bridge.
