Empowering manufacturers. Creating jobs. Transforming our city.

Host a Youth Intern at Your Business
YOUTHMADE: An innovative new collaboration between SFMade and Juma Ventures. YouthMade matches manufacturing businesses in San Francisco with the next generation of makers. Interns are local low-income students who are college-bound and will be the first in their family to earn a four-year degree. 


100% of youth (ages 18-21) have participated in work-readiness training from Juma Ventures, a non-profit leader in the field of youth development. Youth are well-versed in basic workplace professionalism, punctuality, time management, communication, and conflict resolution. 

​The youth are energized, eager to learn, and seeking opportunities. Interns can help with social media marketing, production, customer service, data entry, clean-up projects and more!HOW

Have you always wanted to do something like this but didn’t know how? It’s EASY and FREE— no payment, no paperwork, no insurance requirements! Interns will receive a grant-funded stipend. 

SFMade will help you to develop a work plan and find youth that best match your needs.


-Identify work and observation/shadowing opportunties in your business operation

-Participate in an orientation/training on working with the youth at your site -Provide supervision throughout the internship

-Start on June 17 for 6-8 weeks, 10-15 hours per week

By hosting an intern, you will get no-cost help while providing a valuable work experience for the next generation of manufacturers in San Francisco. 


A limited number of interns are available.
