New Door Ventures is excited to announce that in 2016, we will be increasing entry points for transitional aged youth seeking employment! We will be starting new cohorts of youth in employment at 10 points throughout the year– see program dates below. We aim to employ at least 200 youth next year!
We host information sessions every Tuesday at 10:30 am and every Thursday at 4:00 pm for young adults (ages 17-24) interested in our employment opportunities. The information session is the first step to being accepted to New Door. All youth who make it ON TIME to the information session are invited to take an application and schedule a one-on-one interview with one of our case managers.
New Door interns work at either Ashbury Images, our silk screening business; Pedal Revolution, our full service bicycle shop; or one of our local business partners. We have 75+ community partners, local businesses that agree to employ youth from our program. New Door’s current roster of partners represent a diverse array of industries, such as food service and hospitality; office and administrative support for legal and financial services; childcare and after-school programs creative arts and media; and hands-on labor.
Before a youth begins employment, they must complete a 2-week pre-job training orientation. Youth receive a stipend totaling $150 for completing the orientation. Our first 2016 cohort begins with a mandatory meeting on January 14th with training starting January 19th. Orientations are 2 weeks long, Monday through Friday from 2-5 pm.
New Door youth interns receive an hourly wage ($12.25), a monthly Clipper card, and on-going educational and case management support while engaged at New Door. I have attached our program flyer for you to distribute as well as our referral form if you have any youth to refer to us.
