Enterprise for High School Students

About

The mission of Enterprise for High School Students is to engage and empower San Francisco Bay Area high school students to discover career opportunities and cultivate their individual interests through training, guidance, and employment experiences in a diverse and supportive learning environment.

Enterprise for High School Students was founded in 1969 by Gladys Thacher, a non-profit visionary and champion of young people, who also helped found the San Francisco Education Fund, San Francisco Village, and Lifeprint, formerly Alumnae Resources/Lifeplan Center. Since then, EHSS has evolved from helping a handful of students find summer jobs into an integrated group of programs that combine job-readiness training with experiential learning. More than 20,000 San Francisco teenagers, including youth from almost every public and private high school in San Francisco, have learned the skills and values essential to workplace success at EHSS.
