Team Mission

New Avenues for Youth is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and intervention of youth homelessness. Since 1997, our programs and services have impacted more than 20,000 young people as they work to overcome barriers, pursue their goals, and realize their potential. From supporting basic needs and opportunities for education, job training, employment, and housing, New Avenues meets youth where they are — and help them get where they want to go.

New Avenues’ social enterprises are mission-driven, revenue-generating businesses that provide paid job-training and support services to assist youth in building the skills and confidence they need to be successful in finding and retaining meaningful employment. In addition to New Avenues INK, New Avenues for Youth owns and operates a Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop in Downtown Portland.

Each and every time you select the professional services of New Avenues INK, you get the high quality, branded apparel and promotional items you need while investing in the future of Portland’s youth.
