In the larger spirit of San Francisco Connect,Youth & Families Connect works to link schools and youth to the community as well as improve the academic and employment opportunities available to youth.
In partnership with DonorsChoose and San Francisco School Volunteers, Youth & Families Connect engages community members in schools through volunteering and financial donations that will directly benefit youth and their schools.
Additionally, Youth & Families Connect issues specific challenges to donors and plans events to encourage volunteering. Youth & Families Connect will also work with United Way of the Bay Area to provide job placement and training for youth.
Lastly, Youth & Families Connect works with the Mayor’s Office to recognize San Francisco’s outstanding teachers through the Mayor’s Teacher of the Month Recognition Award.
