Diversity Apprenticeship Program

Are you interested in gaining a fast track to a leadership career in Baltimore’s hospitality and tourism industry? Our Diversity Apprenticeship program may be the perfect fit for you.

This 600-hour paid apprenticeship program provides substantial and holistic experience working across multiple departments within Visit Baltimore and Guinness Open Gate Brewery as well as exposure to other industry partners such as a hotel, attraction, convention, arena or other sports facility (customized pending apprentice interests and experience).

The program actively targets applicants from Baltimore City who identify as BIPOC or with another under-represented or minority group.

This program is made possible by Guinness Open Gate Brewery. Thank you for your unwavering support in creating more pathways for underrepresented populations within the travel and tourism space.

And thank you to our program partners at Searchwide Global for developing and investing in leaders of tomorrow who represent a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives.
