What is the HI Project?
The HI Project is more than a training program, it’s a philosophy, a movement, a game-changer. It’s empowering people living with a disability, and supporting businesses to employ these passionate and dedicated individuals.
Learning alongside some of the best educators in Adelaide, the HI Project can kick-start the hospitality careers of people living with a disability.
