Making San Francisco a Great Place to Grow Up!


Apply Now for DCYF’s Program Design Institute for Social Justice

Poverty, police brutality, sexual exploitation, and the school to prison pipeline are all things will impact youth-serving nonprofit programs, but these elements do not have to be deterrents to providing quality, social justice framed programs. In this four-day institute, youth-serving nonprofit agencies will redesign their programs from the ground up and get strategies for shifting current practices to match a social justice-informed vision. Applications are due on August 29 at 6pm.
