Football season has begun and we are excited to be employing 120 youth at the 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara for a second season! Over the summer, youth went through hours of job training to prepare for vending food and beverages. Throughout the season, youth will continue to develop their job skills while working and saving money towards college.
Thanks to the Super Bowl 50 Fund, Juma is able to provide opportunities like these to Bay Area youth. Juma is proud to be 1 of just 5 recipients of the 50 Fund ‘Game Changer’ grant for our pioneering and results-driven work in the field of youth development. This grant allows us to provide more employment and asset building opportunities for Bay Area youth at a time when youth employment is at an historic low and debt from student loans is at an all-time high.
We look forward to expanding our award-winning work, deepening our impact and creating more opportunities for youth to thrive in the Bay Area and beyond!
