Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco supports Club members in preparing for their futures—including setting and reaching their educational and career goals. We strive to ensure that every teen who walks through our doors graduates from high school and has a life plan to become a contributing member of the community. Trained professional staff show our teens that someone cares, and provide positive adult mentors and role models. They guide our young people to make positive choices in their lives, become self-sufficient, and build character and leadership skills that will last a lifetime.
In 2007, we launched a new Teen Campaign to step up our efforts to give teens the support they need to successfully advance from eighth grade into young adulthood. The Campaign’s goals are to:
- Help ensure that our members graduate from high school
- Provide a higher level of support and accountability for teen members as they transition out of the Clubhouse and onto the next phase of their lives
- Provide increased resources and opportunities for teens post-high school graduation, including community college, apprenticeship programs, vocational training programs, four year colleges/universities, and more
