No greater crisis exists in communities of color than the lack of resources intentionally invested toward our black and brown male scholars. Our young men are diagnosed with ADHD three times more than young women, and they lose five times the amount of educational hours due to disciplinary actions. Often times, these young men live in communities without male role models or a clear path for future prosperity. We are committed to increasing prosperity in communities of color in San Francisco by eliminating the achievement gap.
On a bi-weekly basis our students participate in creative and engaging educational programming. Transforming them into eager learners ready to excel. Excitement and curiosity emerge under the guidance of culturally competent caring teachers, mentors, and trained volunteers who maintain a positive, safe, and exciting learning environment.
