JVS helps youth in San Francisco, ages 14-24, transform their lives by building skills and connections to succeed in school and work. Our goal is to help young people experience the world of work and transition to postsecondary education or a job with career potential.
JVS works with foster youth and high school youth with disabilities to identify career goals, prepare for the world of work and build skills through after-school and summer jobs.
High School Partnerships
JVS partners with John O’Connell High School and Downtown High School to link in-school coursework to future careers through work-based learning.
JVS helps youth build bridges to postsecondary education and careers in three industries: early care and education, building construction trades, and environmental technology.
