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.

We are a nonprofit, but we also run businesses. New Door Ventures owns and operates Ashbury Images, a screen-printing and promotional products company, and Pedal Revolution, a full-service bike shop. In addition to providing quality goods and services, these businesses employ youth interns to screen print shirts and tune up bikes.



Through our employment program, young people secure paid internships at our two social enterprises and at local businesses we call Ally Partners. They provide a real job, training and hands-on experience. Youth gain skills and confidence through working. New Door provides the skills training, education and individualized support to ensure youth have what they need to succeed.
