What We Do
Peer Resources creates spaces for youth to find their purpose and be our community changemakers. Our youth over-represent as low-income people of color, particularly African American and Latin, compared to the general San Francisco population. Together, they build authentic relationships and act as leader today. Our youth are the future leaders of our shared community.
The Peer Leaders program trains youth to see themselves as leaders and work together to make systemic change. 700 middle and high school youth across 14 San Francisco public schools lead services—including restorative mediation, mentoring, and more—for 16,000 peers each year. The program empowers young people working together to create solutions that break down institutional barriers and change lives. Learn more, here.
The Educator Pathway is growing educator leaders of and for San Francisco, through internal Peer Resources program, and by leading the San Francisco Educator Pathway Coalition (SFEPC). The San Francisco Educator Pathway Coalition is driving a local and transformative solution, coordinating a pathway of services, education, and resources, so that homegrown San Francisco educators can thrive.
