Stay Grounded FAQs
What is this exactly?
The Stay Grounded Initiative is a program that takes a holistic approach to the mental health and well-being of the hourly coffee worker. We started with offering 3-month vouchers to TalkSpace, but in 2021 we are moving to 6-month vouchers through Open Path to allow for more flexibility for the hourly coffee worker. We are also adding mindfulness education, and yoga classes, as well as the Get Psyched initiative, a program to help hourly coffee workers get help with psychotherapeutic care.
Who can apply?
The Stay Grounded Initiative is open to all hourly coffee professionals who have worked in coffee in the past 12 months. For our therapy program in 2021, we are reserving 5 of the slots for People of Color, and 5 for folks that were affected by Hurricane Ida.
What if I don't want to disclose my racial identity?
You don't have to, that question is completely optional.
How will the people who get the vouchers be selected?
The selections will be made via a randomized lottery.
When will the applications open/close?
What will the applications be like?
We are going to ask for your name, some (optional) demographic information, and whether or not you are employed.
