Interested in learning how income inequality in the Bay Area is adversely affecting youth ages 16-24? Please join us for a video conversation with Mark Cole, Chief Operating Officer at New Door Ventures, one of Calvary’s non-profit community partners. Mark will also talk about the impact of the coronavirus on New Door Ventures programs and the youth they serve. Mark Cole, Chief Operating Officer of New Door Ventures, oversees New Door Ventures’ social enterprises, Ashbury Images and Pedal Revolution, in addition to finance, human resources, administration and organizational learning functions. He also leads planning and development of key strategic initiatives. New Door Ventures helps disconnected youth – those without a job and not in school, between the ages of 16 and 24 – get ready for work and life. Many of the youth have experienced homelessness, incarceration, substance abuse, or other challenges. At New Door, youth work on completing their education, learn job readiness skills and are offered real jobs at one of their social enterprises. They depend on partners and volunteers like Calvary to help them with mock job interviews, resume review, career panels, as well as financial assistance.
