August 2018 Charity of the Month: Juma
Juma’s Seattle chapter has been named Bonneville Seattle’s Charity of the Month for August. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty by paving the way to work, education and financial capability for youth in the Seattle area. Through Juma jobs, youth are taught leadership skills and build confidence for a successful career. Juma offers year round employment to over 140 Seattle youth at Safeco Field, CenturyLink Field and Husky Stadium.
Juma expanded to Seattle in 2013, and in that time they have employed over 550 youth who have earned over $1.5 million in wages and saved $250,000 for college through their matched savings program. The career skills they learn and financial education they receive set them up to be successful down their career path.
