Hello Bay Area Service Providers,


As you know, New Door hires 17-24 years olds for our employment program regularly!  We have four cohorts left to fill in 2016! The start dates for the rest of the year are below but it is never a bad time to send a youth to New Door.  Our next session begins on Friday, 8/12 so youth interested in joining that cohort should come to an info session ASAP to begin the intake process!


The information session is the first step to being accepted to New Door. 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. 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 & embroidery business; Pedal Revolution, our full service bicycle shop; or one of our many 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 based on their attendance totaling $150 for completing the orientation. Orientations are 2 weeks long, Monday through Friday from 2-5 pm.


New Door youth interns receive an hourly wage ($13.00), a monthly Clipper card, and on-going educational and case management support while engaged at New Door.
