Providing young people access to paid jobs is
the cornerstone of Enterprise’s work
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.

Stories of Impact
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
