Employment & Occupations
Mission: Juma helps break the cycle of poverty by ensuring that young people complete a four-year college degree.
Children who grow up in poverty are more likely as adults to have low earnings, which increases the likelihood that they will remain poor and, in turn, raise their children in poverty. It’s a cycle that affects more than just the poor trapped inside it. A less productive workforce combined with the high cost of “treating” poverty instead of “curing” it can have a devastating impact on economies and societies alike.
Juma Ventures is an innovative and award-winning youth development program that combines employment in social enterprises, college preparation, and financial asset building to create a safe, supportive community where under-resourced youth can achieve their dreams of a college education.Visit the "JUMA Ventures" website
