Guided by the voices of youth, we develop and invest in collaborative pilots that fill critical needs in our community. We bring together stakeholders to pilot new approaches that will allow young people in San Francisco the freedom to thrive.
INVITING, PREPARING, AND ALLOWING YOUTH TO LEAD
Youth play a critical role in designing our work, and we are developing infrastructure for their voices to be evermore a part of San Francisco’s work at large.
DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE PILOTS TO DECREASE EXPLOITATION
We partner with youth and existing providers to develop and implement pilots and tools that address important needs in our community.
