Job Readiness Program

Enterprise for Youth’s job readiness and internship program is a wonderful way to kick off your career. You will participate in engaging workshops and receive individualized support that prepares you for success in a wide range of work settings.

All youth leave the program with:

  • An internship placement (in fall or summer)

  • A polished resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile
  • Strong interview skills
  • Access to college counseling and ongoing career support
  • Access to a network of caring adults — their first professional network
  • Access to Enterprise’s Job Bank



Youth who complete our five-week training program receive a $125 stipend and access to year-round employment opportunities. All youth qualify for college credit for completing one of our paid internships. At Enterprise, we know that a first job can be life changing, and our programs open the door for San Francisco youth to explore exciting work opportunities in technology, healthcare, law, retail, design, and more.
