The Barista Apprenticeship program, run by Alaska’s People, is a hands-on training program through which participants will earn their barista certification and their food handlers card. Barista apprentices work at CITC’s Coho Cup, where they learn the ins and outs of coffee creation. And thanks to Alaska’s People’s relationship with local vendors, baristas who complete the program are guaranteed an interview with local coffee shops for a permanent position.
To enroll in the program, an individual must be 18 years old, have their high school diploma or GED, and be Alaska Native/American Indian. We accept any job experience level, from entry-level to seasoned worker.
