youth are assets

80,000 youth ages 16-24 in the San Francisco Bay Area are disconnected from employment and education. Without connecting to school and work, these young people are at high risk to be poor, unemployed, homeless or incarcerated throughout their adult lives. All youth should have the opportunity to transition to a fulfilling, economically sustainable adulthood. New Door Ventures provides skills training, meaningful jobs, education assistance and personal support to help disconnected youth get ready for work and life.

SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

New Door Ventures has made the deeply challenging decision to close our social enterprises, Ashbury Images and Pedal Revolution. The official closing date for both businesses is June 1. We will continue to provide employment and education programs for low-income, transition-age youth and continue to fight and work toward opportunity and economic mobility for all Bay Area youth.
