What's the issue?

In San Francisco there are approximately 7,500 16-to-24 year olds who are disconnected from employment, education, and the social supports needed for a successful transition to adulthood. Without intervention, these young people are at-risk for a number of negative outcomes, including substantial periods of unemployment, homelessness, involvement with the criminal justice system, and poverty.

What do we provide?

New Door Ventures gets these youth ready for work and life by providing the practical work experience, job training and deep individual support that enables transitional-aged youth to identify their strengths and abilities, apply them in real-work settings, and experience the power of being productive members of their communities. We believe youth are assets.

1. Paid Jobs

Youth are employed at nonprofit businesses we own and community businesses/organizations with whom we partner.

2. Job Training

Youth learn together through interactive, hands-on workshops held weekly or semi-monthly, and experience a community focused together on positive goals.

3. Individualized Case Management

1:1 support is provided for every youth by highly skilled case managers.

4. Educational Support

Youth have the opportunity to receive individualized tutoring and/or attend a GED prep course provided in-house.
