New Avenues for Youth runs nonprofit businesses that provide employment training opportunities for homeless and at-risk youth. Our social purpose enterprises are a key vehicle for youth to develop the skills needed to obtain permanent employment, access post-secondary opportunities, and build a pathway to long-term success. The enterprises include two Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShops, and a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream catering and cart business.

Ben & Jerry's PSU and Ben & Jerry’s Pioneer Square scoop delicious Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the people of downtown Portland. Every scoop you buy creates job opportunities for youth, so you’re making our community better, one sundae, shake, or fresh fruit smoothie at a time. AND, they cater!

Listen as Treasure talks with Dorian, Joe, and Matt tell us about Ben and Jerry's, New Avenues for Youth, and the social importance of job opportunities for at risk youth.
