Mission Statement

New Door Ventures prepares disconnected youth for work and life. We provide skill-building, individual support and jobs that enable our youth to discover and achieve their potential. Our work is integral to their successful transition to healthy, sustainable adulthood. We aim to transform individuals who will in turn transform their communities.

Description

San Francisco has 8,000 16-24 year-olds who are disconnected from employment, education, and social supports. Without intervention, they are likely to remain disconnected and and on public aid. We provide on-the-job training in two market-leading social enterprises and 30+ partner businesses, job readiness workshops, on-site education programs, and supportive relationships with case managers and mentors from the community. Our program works: in 2014, 92% of our graduates were connected to school or employment six months after program completion.

It was interesting to talk about my career, especially with one young trans boy who asked to speak with me after the career panel. I felt I was able to be helpful in encouraging him to pursue a career in the helping professions.

it was really a great opportunity to impact the coming generation. The organizers were really professional and well inclined.
