How we help

In San Francisco and Alameda Counties, there are more than 20,000 transition-age youth disconnected from work and school. Without intervention during this critical period, youth are at risk of a lifetime of instability.

Through New Door’s comprehensive employment and education programs, youth receive access to the paid jobs, training, test prep and support, and coaching that they need to achieve their full potential.

In 2020, we served 321 young people through employment, training, alumni services, education, case management and job placement services.

Our 2020 Impact

212 weekly skill-building workshops in hard and soft skills

“New Door really helped me in all the ways: financially, emotionally, and mentally. It got me more confident in the workforce and eased my anxiety because I had stable income.”
