I started One Day One Job because I couldn’t land a job. After taking a bit of a break after graduating college, I realized that employers weren’t too keen on hiring someone who had been on the job market for a while. The only way that I was going to get experience was to create it for myself. People with criminal histories face a similar, but much more dire problem. That’s why Defy Ventures was started. They’re a New York, NY based non-profit that “provides carefully selected, ambitious men and women who have criminal histories with life-changing entrepreneurship, leadership, and career opportunities.”
If you’ve watched The Wire, you know that “many former drug dealers and gang leaders share similar skill sets and talents with top business leaders.” The best way to ensure that they remain former criminals is to help put those skills to productive use. Defy Ventures does this by offering both training and funding. You can get a broader overview of the specific problems that they’re trying to tackle here, and you can start to see how Defy is already succeeding by meeting some of their graduates. If this sounds like rewarding work to you, check out Defy Ventures’ jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Development Assistant.
