What we aim to solve New!

In the Bay Area, there are nearly 80,000 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.

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our ultimate goal is for New Door youth to leave the path of disconnection and make a successful transition to an adulthood marked by sustained employment and positive engagement with their community. Our vision is to provide 2,000 jobs for disconnected youth in the next decade. When we prepare and connect a young person to work, we equip them with the training and resources necessary to transform his or her community for generations to come.

Core Services:
- Paid job internships: 15-20 hours per week for 3 months
- Individual case support: 2-3 hours a week, where New Door case managers help youth establish goals and take steps for their future
- Weekly job skills workshops: topics ranging from interviewing and resume writing to personal finance and time management
- Life skills workshop: 1-2 times a month on topics such as money management, having healthy relationships and conflict management

In 2015, we worked with our community to develop our 2016-2020 strategic plan. After extensive listening and learning from community leaders, youth, partners, board members, and field experts we have committed to these five key strategic priorities: 1. Reach more disconnected youth in and around theSan Francisco Bay Area 2. Strengthen employment programs for even greater impact 3. Deepen education services to ensure youth have access to postsecondary education training 4. Replicate program in other Bay Area counties where there are 10 times more disconnected youth 5. Connect graduates to next jobs and schools, partnering with employers, training programs, and education providers

Our number of youth served and youth employed each year will clearly state whether we're making process.

In 2018, we plan to employ 240 youth in San Francisco and the East Bay by working with more than 70 partner sites and employing 50 interns at our social enterprises. Between 2011 and 2020 New Door will connect over 2,500 youth to education and employment. We will reach this goal by: -Serving 380 youth in 2018. We will train and employ 260 youth and provide education and support to 150 youth -Partnering with over 100 community agencies who refer youth to New Door and provide complementary support services -Engaging 300 volunteers annually
