Mentoring University Students into a Career in Sales


Access Partners is a strong advocate for Education.  Starting in September of 2014, four deserving students at the Cal Poly Pomona business school were the first Access Partners Scholars. These students were awarded full scholarships and became carter members of the Access Partners mentorship program.  The scholarships are awarded in part on the basis of need and each student recipient agrees to consider a career in business in the Foodservice or Facilities Solutions industry as a part of their commitment. Each recipient is also assigned a mentor from our Access Partners managers who will help facilitate their learning through active participation in industry events.

Since then, we’ve awarded new scholarship recipients each year.


In addition to our mentor and scholarship programs, Access Partners offers internships to local university students looking for real world experience in the areas of sales and marketing.  To date, we’ve hosted students from around the West as we inspire them to consider careers either with us or with our other manufacturer or distributor partners in the industry.
