The Grounds Junior Barista Application
The Junior Barista program is a unique serving opportunity within The Grounds Bookstore and Café designed for students at Meck who are at least 14 years old. It is a mixture of education and real-life work experience. Junior Baristas will gain experience in a bookstore and café setting while also learning about the mission and vision of the Grounds’ ministry. They’ll learn things like -
- The behind-the-scenes processes of The Grounds;
- How to engage in excellent customer service that honors Jesus;
- Real-world work expectations and responsibilities.
Junior Barista applicants must fill out The Grounds’ online Junior Barista application and attend a face-to-face orientation along with at least one parent. In addition to being at least 14 years of age, Junior Barista applicants must display maturity, responsibility, the ability to work autonomously, respect for elders and authority, and a willingness to work hard. The Junior Barista team is limited to 10 students, so not all applicants may be able to participate at the time they apply.
