Our biggest summer ever & an invitation to celebrate with us on July 11th!

A Letter from our CEO

Dear Community,

This month 270 Enterprise youth have walked through the doors of their summer internships all over San Francisco. Before their first day, they completed their trainings and interviews. They polished their resumes and faced their public speaking fears. They chose what to wear and made sure they were early on Day One. We are so proud of each individual young person and we are especially proud because Enterprise is employing the largest number of youth in our 50-year history. 

On July 11th at City Hall, we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary and 25,000 first jobs for San Francisco youth. In addition to 50 years of opening doors for young people, we will also be raising a glass to our founder —Glady Thacher — on her 90th birthday. You are invited, and we don't want you to miss out. Please save the date and RSVP below.

I want to take a moment to thank our 2019 internship hosts. It is an act of love to welcome a young person into your workplace. Working at a young age creates a path to future economic prosperity, so this generosity yields real results. Please join me in truly thanking the generous people at these companies and organizations who make this possible.
