Opportunities for All (OFA) Kick Off
On Monday June 17th, 2019 our organization kicked off the Opportunities
for All (OFA) Summer Internship Program.
The Opportunities for All project will place low-income and underserved
high-school aged youth in summer STEM internships, building critical career
skills, increasing knowledge of STEM concepts, and providing on-the-job experience
that is transferable to future education and career pathways.
The project is a partnership between Opportunities for All, Microsoft,
LinkedIn, Uber the City of San Francisco Mayor’s Office, and our organization.
Youth from various SF High Schools will have the opportunity for an internship
this summer with our organization. Internships will vary from social media,
data entry, admin assistant, blogger, Microsoft Projects, LinkedIn, outreach
and helping out in our STEAM Hub. Youth will be placed in the different communities
that we serve: Mission,Western Addition, Bayview Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley.
Opportunities for All (OFA) provides access to career exploration and workforce
development for San Francisco’s youth and young adults. The initiative includes
paid internships, mentorship, and pathways to employment, including job readiness,
career training, and apprenticeship for participants ages 13-24. OFA focuses on
equitable access to these opportunities through workforce connection, support
job resources for both job seekers and employers.
