Mission Statement

Juma helps break the cycle of poverty by ensuring that young people complete a four-year college degree.

Description

Over the past 20 years, Juma has transformed into a national, award-winning youth development program serving more than 1,200 low-income students in six cities -- New Orleans, New York, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle. Juma's program combines employment in social enterprises, college preparation, and financial asset building to create a safe, supportive community where low-income youth can achieve their dreams of a college education. Since 1993, Juma has helped more than 4,000 young people earn more than $4 million in wages and save more than $2 million for higher education.
