DCYF and our City, school district, and nonprofit partners are dedicated to ensuring that youth ages 14-24 in San Francisco have meaningful work experiences in the summer, and many of the organizations that provide these workforce development opportunities are accepting applications now!
- SF Rec & Park and Port of San Francisco Greenagers Program. Greenagers offers high school sophomores and juniors who live in the southeast and northeast sides of San Francisco a chance to play an important role in the community by improving green spaces and raising awareness. Participants will meet and work with teens their own age, collaborate with other youth organizations and gain crucial skills in facilitating workshops, networking, public speaking, teamwork, environmental education, and community engagement. Applications are due April 29.
- New Door Ventures. New Door Ventures places disconnected youth ages 16-24 in part-time paid internships for three months. Interns work at New Door's bicycle shop, screen printing warehouse, or with one of their 60+ partner organizations. Youth interested in New Door's services need to attend an info session, which take place every Tuesday at 10:30am and every Thursday at 4pm.

Bay Area Community Resources' Communities in Harmony Advocating for Learning & Kids (CHALK) offers a range of free services for youth, including mock interviews, resume editing, cover letter editing, job readiness workshops, access to private sector jobs, access to interview clothing, access to education services, and access to computers, printers, and fax machines. CHALK also hosts drop-in job search info sessions every Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm to 7pm at 271 Austin Street.
