Welcome to the FRLAEF Website!

The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association Educational Foundation is the only organization in Florida that offers the ProStart program, the Lodging Management Program (LMP), the Hospitality & Tourism Management Program (HTMP) and the Skills, Tasks and Results Training program (START).

These programs were developed to increase the quality and employability of today's high school graduates by providing them with training related to important job skills as well as opportunities for careers and higher education.

Students are introduced to careers in foodservice and lodging and are taught basic skills needed for success in these industries. This is accomplished through dynamic and comprehensive curriculum coupled with on-the-job training.
