Wise SV is a social enterprise that provides training, livable wages and a career path for low income people. A joint venture started by two highly successful non-profits, JobTrain and CALSO, Wise SV develops successful and sustainable for-profit for-good companies.
Rendezvous Café & Catering is the first of several enterprises from Wise SV.



CALSO’s mission is to strengthen communities by empowering individuals to reach their full potential. We aim at building an inclusive society where all people have the opportunity to reach their full potential by developing a comprehensive approach towards poverty. Indeed, we know from experience that each exclusion situation is a mix of several unresolved issues (e.g. health, housing, environmental, psychological). That is why we believe it is important to develop integrated and holistic solutions.


JobTrain transforms lives and communities in Silicon Valley. We help the Valley’s most in need reclaim their lives from poverty and unemployment by preparing them for successful, sustainable careers in high-demand and emerging fields.
