Our annual fundraiser to celebrate our Promoting Avenues to Employment (PAVE) program and our two social purpose enterprises – New Avenues INK and Ben & Jerry’s on Yamhill!


Visit our PartnerShop (524 SW Yamhill St, Portland, OR 97204) from 12P-8P for a free scoop!

On April 16th, 2024, New Avenues for Youth will hold our annual Scoop-a-Thon with all proceeds supporting our programs for youth experiencing or at-risk of homelessness.

We are seeking out sponsors for this one-of-a-kind event, and we’d like you to join us! Sponsorships range from “Scooper Sponsors” who have the chance to scoop ice cream in our Partnershop for an hour shift to “Sundae Sponsors” who can pick up Ice Cream Sundae Kits to take the fun to-go on a date of your choosing. Details are outlined in the packet below.

In an effort to provide tangible job training skills, New Avenues operates two social purpose enterprises in the Portland Area. Our screen-printing shop, New Avenues INK, has been printing high-quality items for businesses and individuals in our community for more than 9 years providing internships to young people. Our Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop on Yamhill opened its doors in 2004, and is the only remaining PartnerShop run by a non-profit in the Ben & Jerry’s franchise.

Additionally, our Promoting Avenues to Employment (PAVE) program supports young people seeking professional support. This one-stop-shop provides opportunities for job exploration, resume development, career coaching, and connections to internship and job opportunities. In the last year alone, more than 110 job & internship placements were made through PAVE.
