New Door Ventures

New Door Ventures (“New Door”) provides Bay Area at-risk youths between the ages of 16 and 21 opportunities for work as pathways to sustainable lives. New Door provides over 130 paid internships a year and serves more than 200 youth annually through job-readiness training and supportive case management.

NPI Rating: NEUTRAL

New Door demonstrates ambition as they raise funds to create more jobs through building a youth center. However, New Door’s impact measurement of graduate statistics six months after completion of the programs is insufficient to measure long-term impact. Also, the decline in number of youths served while expenses increased from 2008 to 2011 raises questions about New Door’s cost structure.
