Today’s non-profit has a lot in common with us. They’re all about “youth development,” and I guess you could say that we are too. Juma Ventures is based out of Oakland, CA and Washington, DC, and they “operates businesses – known as “social enterprises” – for the purpose of providing job opportunities to economically disadvantaged teens.” Beyond providing jobs, they also empower “youth with financial education and savings programs, college & career exploration, and essential life skills.” It almost sounds like the offline version of IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com + OneDayOneJob.com. Every year Juma Ventures works with 100s of 16-19 year olds from San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego and Washington DC’s most impoverished neighborhoods. They’re a non-profit that uses for-profit businesses to accomplish their mission, and they seem to be having great results. Maybe we should try to find a way to get our job search training course into their curriculum.
In case you didn’t get it, I was referring to this. Juma should do their own version and call it Juma, Juma. They don’t have any videos as entertaining as that, but they do have a video that does a great job of telling their story (if you can’t see it below, click through).
Right now, Juma Ventures has two job openings posted on their Idealist page (even though their own Jobs page says that they don’t have any openings). Both of the jobs look like they could be considered entry level. One is in Oakland, CA – Youth Development Manager – and the other is in Washington, DC – Education Coordinator. The job descriptions are extremely detailed and include information on how to apply, so check them out and see if Juma Ventures might be a great place for you to start your career.
