Juma is one of the nation’s premier social enterprise programs. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty by ensuring that young people complete a four-year college education. We operate 13 social enterprises and employ 700 youth at major sports venues across the country. Youth receive college access support, financial education and matched college savings accounts. Since 1993, we have employed 4,000 low-income youth, who have earned $4 million in wages and saved $2 million for college.
