Our Youth Development Department (YD) consists of four city initiatives that assist our youth in their overall development and continued enrichment through job readiness training, academic support, and mentorship. Youth ages 14 - 24 gain community ownership through partnerships with community organization and financial independence. Our diverse and engaging staff teach youth the skills to make, reach and fulfill their goals and aspirations.
YCD offers services to assist high at-risk and in-risk individuals, ages 14-35, involved in the justice system. We provide these customers with paid job readiness training; subsidized work experience; and employment and education placement services that align with their interests. Our intensive case management services help them to overcome employment barriers and access additional programs and resources to support their job search.
YCD addresses the affordability crisis in District 10 by acquiring, preserving and developing affordable housing. We collaborate with organizations across San Francisco to share and propose strategies and policies that prevent displacement and keep local residents rooted in their communities. To date, YCD has been instrumental in developing 60 units of affordable housing at Pacific Point on the Shipyard. We currently have 156 units of affordable housing in the pipeline at Candlestick Park Block 10A.
This campaign allows the city to redirect purchasing through SNTF’s proprietary curated system.
All identified purchasing budgets for “products” necessary for operations can now be re-directed and purchased through a dedicated “microsite” or a campaign page, where 40¢ of every $1 spent will be given back to a community do-good initiative or the in-house foundation.
Budgets that can be redirected: daily consumption products provided for staff/residents; operational supplies; stationery and office supplies; and much more! SNTF can fulfill ALL consumer purchases with NO additional cost and great quality!
The funds raised can also be used to further the mission of your entity foundation or community development commitment.
