High School Internship Program:
Rooftop Reds’ mission will expand beyond revolutionary urban viticulture techniques. We aim to educate and ignite the imagination of the next generation, so they can see New York City as more than just a concrete jungle. We will do this by introducing youth from Brooklyn to the professional and entrepreneurial opportunities offered by the wine industry. Rooftop Reds will partner with Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Employment Center to establish an internship program for Brooklyn high school students in the summer of 2015. This internship will expose students to hands-on vineyard management practices, lectures from city SOMM's, New York winemakers, and wine industry leaders.
