STEPUP Applications Due Sept. 15
STEPUP (Spirits Training Entrepreneurship Program for Underrepresented Professionals) provides underserved and underrepresented individuals with hands-on training and education, encouragement and opportunities to enter the spirits community through a comprehensive internship program like no other in the alcohol beverage industry.
Working with distilleries and wholesalers throughout the United States, STEPUP provides a comprehensive, hands-on training program with a living stipend and provides job exposure for those of different races, color, national origins, abilities, genders and sexual orientations.
Do you want to help us diversify the spirits industry? Are you willing to open your doors to an inquisitive learner from an underrepresented community? Become a Host Distillery or Wholesaler!
Do you often listen to your friends and colleagues and offer advice? Are you a natural at providing encouragement? Become a Mentor!
Are you or do you know an underrepresented person who is passionate about the spirits industry, but doesn’t know where to start? Become an Intern!
Still wondering whether this opportunity is a good fit for you? Check out these testimonial videos from those already immersed in the program as DSPs or mentors.
If you or someone you know might be a good fit as an intern, mentor, host DSP or wholesaler, please apply TODAY at stepupinternship.org. The deadline for applications is Sept. 15.
