Save the Date –  Tuesday, April 9th, we will celebrate Ben & Jerry’s National Free Cone Day at our PartnerShops by holding our 9th annual Scoop-A-Thon!

New Avenues for Youth is the only nonprofit in the country that owns and operates two Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShops offering real-world work experience for the young people we serve. Our annual Scoop-A-Thon is an opportunity for local businesses and individuals like you to scoop alongside the youth we employ and help raise awareness and funds for New Avenues for Youth’s programs and services, including PAVE, our job readiness program, and our Service Industry Training Program. Last year on National Free Cone Day, our Scoop-A-Thon teams scooped over 6,000 ice cream cones at our Partner-Shops and raised an incredible $40,000 for our programs including job readiness training and education. Our annual Scoop-A-Thon event consistently attracts news coverage and engages community members all day long and remains the most successful charity event across the nation to be held on Free Cone Day. All this would not be possible without the help of our Scoop Teams and presenting sponsor Bank of America.

HUGE THANK YOU to our 2019 Scoop Teams and for the continued support of Bank of America!

Below are a few of our participating businesses.


You can join thousands of ice cream lovers and local businesses and community leaders to make a difference in the lives of the young people by raising awareness and funds for our job-training programs for youth.
