Mission Bit Code Nation

Enterprise for Youth empowers under-resourced
San Francisco youth to reach their potential through transformative paid internship experiences supported by a community of employers, caring adults, and peers. 

Enterprise is a central employment resource, where youth learn job-readiness skills and soft skills — and practice those skills in supportive, paid internships. Through ongoing professional development workshops, youth connect career goals with postsecondary education through college coursework at City College of San Francisco, while building a strong network of peers, colleagues, and mentors. Our multi-year model allows youth to develop their resumes during high school through paid work experience and training opportunities in the fields of healthcare, technology, art/architecture/design, financial and legal services, government and nonprofit, entrepreneurship, environmental stewardship, communications, and retail.

External and SF New Deal



Enterprise for Youth seeks volunteers on a rolling basis for our virtual youth programs. Volunteers can support by conducting mock interviews, providing feedback and edits on resumes and cover letters, or offering small group mentorship.

Our work is possible with the support of partners like you. Sign up to help give youth opportunities to feel empowered, uplifted, and hopeful in their personal and professional futures.

      The Beginning of Enterprise

      "I am so grateful that Enterprise has been doing this work for so many years and has not given up hope in the youth of our community. If we do not invest in young people, what kind of future will we have?"

      — London Breed, Mayor of San Francisco
