Job-Readiness Skills Sessions

For youth who have already completed job-readiness training and want to further develop their skills, starting in September, we will offer Job-Readiness Skills sessions weekly on Fridays from 4-5:30pm. During these sessions, you will have the opportunity to work on strengthening your resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and interview skills. 

Anyone who attends a Friday session and actively participates will be given preference in Summer 2022 internship placements. Some youth may be requested to attend another session to continue strengthening their job skills.

ReIMAGINE INTERNSHIP

Seventeen youth worked as interns with SFUSD’s Leading for Equity team examining serious issues that impact them, their peers, and their schools. After being on a listening tour, and engaging in deep research, they were able to present their findings and suggestions to the leaders of the San Francisco Unified School District — including Dr. Matthews himself! The recommendations they proposed around wellness and engagement were insightful and taken seriously by our city’s leaders. We are very proud of their work and their influence and we know they will continue to use their voices, experiences, listening skills and more, to create positive impact in all their future endeavors.

Mission

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.

VISION

Enterprise for Youth envisions that all San Francisco youth are prepared for their professional future and become successful members of society.

REIMAGINE INTERNSHIP

We are thrilled to announce a $75,000 grant from the Walter and Elise Haas Fund. This grant will allow Enterprise to provide job-readiness training and paid internships to a group of young women of color who will work as Youth Facilitators with the Leading for Equity Committee at San Francisco's Unified School District.

Enterprise Alumna Katalina Mendoza will work with us to facilitate the internship, which will be offered as a bi-lingual experience. Enterprise is dedicated to supporting youth through training, direct workforce experience linked to college coursework, and ongoing career-development and networking opportunities.
