Pride Ventures Inc. was formed in 2009 in the state of New Jersey under
Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as a not-for-profit corporation.
We are organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.
Principally, we provide job training and transitional employment experience to
young adults with developmental disabilities who could not independently
succeed in the work place. With the proper training these individuals can gain
practical work and life skills to enhance their future employment opportunities.
ACCOMPLISHING OUR GOAL:
Pride Ventures, Inc. works closely with the staff and students of local high
schools located in Southern New Jersey in conducting job training and
charitable activities. Southern New Jersey consists of many high schools, each
having programs that serve the educational needs of students with developmental
disabilities. We plan to place current and recently graduated students from
area high schools in a real work place environment where they will earn a
salary and pay taxes. Our environment will instill a positive work ethic and
enable these individuals to reach their personal highest level of achievement.
