UP Employment Initiative

Upward Professionals Employment Initiative

The UP Employment Initiative is a unique pilot program and partnership, with the Barbara Stone Foundation, Windsor Aughtry Hotel Group, and Hospitality America, aimed at developing a world class workforce initiative for the inclusive employment of people with disabilities.

Hospitality America will hire eight individuals with disabilities to work at one of their four hotels in Greenville, as well as one intern to work in a professional capacity. A job liaison will assist participants by supporting them as needed and facilitating a professional cohort. Participants will be paid a competitive wage, and have options for customized employment if needed.
