TeenForce is a social enterprise helping youth acquire the skills, habits and work experience to fulfill their potential.

TeenForce Strategy

We operate a non-profit staffing agency to achieve our mission. We prepare and place teens and young adults ages 14 to 24 in temporary, part-time and full-time jobs, or in career-focused internships. At the same time, we are filling the staffing needs of Santa Clara County businesses.

TeenForce workers are enthusiastic, well-prepared and ready to work. We have a particular emphasis on helping current and former foster youth, as well as youth who are engaged in career training in high school and beyond.

Businesses hire TeenForce workers because we make it convenient and cost-effective. We pre-screen and prepare youth, and only recommend those workers with the skills, interests and schedules to meet the business requirement. We handle the hiring, paychecks and payroll taxes, and workers compensation insurance. Working with TeenForce is a win-win for businesses and youth in our community.
