New Avenues for Youth – New Avenues INK

New Avenues for Youth takes a complete approach to addressing youth homelessness and its root causes, delivering support and resources that enable foster, at-risk, and homeless youth aged 14-24 to overcome their barriers and realize their potential. Through direct service, community partnership, advocacy, and data-driven evaluation, they help youth exit street life and prevent those at risk of homelessness from experiencing it. For more than a decade, New Avenues for Youth has used social enterprise as a key strategy. They operate two social enterprises: Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop franchises (of which they own two) and the screen-printing business New Avenues INK.
