In many ways, 2022 was a foundational year for Juma. We rebuilt our social enterprise operations to pre-pandemic levels, we secured our largest grants to date to support our core YouthConnect program, and we spent the second half of the year reflecting on the progress made since our last strategic plan in 2017, which set us on our course to build YouthConnect. Through this strategic planning process, we examined the elements of our Theory of Change that we have built, and identified the remaining pieces of our model that are still aspirational. We charted a course to build measurement systems that both align with our Theory of Change and will enable us to prove impact in the years to come.

This effort is experienced by youth as the workshops they attend, the skills they’re able to build, and the changes they have in their confidence and self-efficacy. The efforts put into rebuilding our social enterprises result in the number of youth we can serve, the hours they work, the wages they earn, and the community they build as they set out on their career paths.

Every metric reported below is the direct result of our intentional effort to serve youth in the ways they need us the most, through an impact platform of a sustainable social enterprise. Thank you for your support as we lay the foundation to accelerate this impact, supporting youth and strengthening our communities for all.






Alex: Looking for a Job & Finding Community

When Alex lost his job and needed to find another source of income, he turned to Juma. He didn't realize when he accepted the job offer that he'd just embarked on a journey through which he would find community, a supportive place to grow, and a team of people rooting for him as he took on the major challenges of transitioning into adulthood. "When I first started at Juma I didn’t think I’d be here long; I was going to look for another job,” recalls Alex. 

“But as I got to know the people I realized I wanted to stay. The people made a big impact. Every other place I’ve worked hasn’t had this camaraderie or positive energy." Today, Alex is working toward his bachelors degree while still earning income at Juma with the flexibility he needs to invest in his future. “I wish Juma had been my first job because I think my career would’ve been off to a way smoother start if I was in an environment as structured and as supportive as Juma."

“I would talk to people [at Juma] who I wouldn’t expect to have anything in common with and then learn about the things they go through. Hearing about them gives me a better perspective and also helps me to be grateful for what I have and to want to do more for others."

Looking Toward a Post-Covid Future


In 2022, we began to envision a fully post-covid future, but it is not a future without challenges. Inflation, a rapidly changing job market, and economic changes have made the transition from youth to young adulthood uniquely challenging.

Of Juma youth reported difficulties paying for necessities like food, medical care, and housing due to the pandemic.

Steep Creamery & Tea: Boba for Good

In 2021, Juma acquired Steep Creamery and Tea. Founded by two Juma alums, Steep was an ideal venture to help Juma youth gain confidence and expand their skillsets. As a youth-run and led enterprise, Steep creates opportunities to gain experience in management and leadership. The success of Steep as a learning laboratory has made it a popular work location for juma youth at in-stadium locations in San Jose and San Francisco. 

This year, we've continued work to refine our approach to youth development at Steep. We've implemented new processes and procedures and new products  as well as significantly expanding our in-stadium footprint. In addition, we've continued to provide catering services to Bay Area businesses to offer even more work opportunities for youth. If you're in the Bay Area, we hope you'll come enjoy a boba drink, ice cream, or delicious bubble waffle!

Leslie: Building Confidence with Intentional Support

Due to Covid-19, Leslie spent her junior year of high school at home learning through a screen. As the world began to open back up, she was ready to jump at the opportunity to earn a paycheck while working toward a brighter future. Growing up, Leslie shared a studio apartment with her sister and both of their parents until high school when their hard work finally paid off and they were able to move into a bigger space. Watching her parents gave Leslie the confidence to know her own hard work would pay off.

At Juma, she met mentors like her program coordinator and supervisor at the stadium. She also found support with Juma's education cordinator. Together, the team were there for Leslie as she navigated her final year of high school. Through her time at Juma, she built confidence—even taking on a major role at Juma's Annual Gala. Through the support she found, Leslie grew and found her way toward the future she knew she could build through the hard work that set her up for success.

"Sometimes resources are hard to come across and intimidating to find but I am lucky enough to have a great support system."

Trinidad: Growing and Learning On and Off the Job

Trinidad had always enjoyed talking to people and being in the center of the action, so when a representative from Juma gave a presentation at her school, she knew it was a win-win: grow her skills, earn income, and experience the magic and energy of professional sports venues. While her first day was nerve-wracking, it was also exhilarating. Over time, she learned the ropes of the ballpark and also how to open up to her coworkers who would become friends.

While the Covid-19 pandemic put working at the ballpark on hold, she was still happy to learn skills like resume-writing and professional communication through Juma’s online workshops. “The resume writing workshop showed me how words can change the way that you’re perceived,” she explains. Trinidad also learned the ropes of personal finance. Today, she puts away a little bit of her income from each paycheck––money she hopes will come in handy when she moves out and heads off to college.

"It felt like we were all in this together so there was no need to be shy…being in a new type of situation helped me break down my boundaries and get to know other Juma youth."
