Programs

Genesis

Operation Genesis is our keystone annual event. Through generous donations from our supporters, we fund an all-expenses paid, 10-day trip to Ghana, Africa.

Students explore and learn about African culture through food tastings, museum outings, video conferencing sessions with Ghanaian students, dance performances and other culturally enriching activities.

Youth Career Academy

Youth Career Academy (YCA) is a six-week exploration of the criminal justice system. Currently hosted as a summer program, YCA is designed to educate San Francisco’s youth about the inner-workings of the criminal justice system and provide them with a unique look at the many careers paths it affords. We aim to inspire our participants to pursue a career in the criminal justice field, and become a community leader who is sensitive to local culture.

Participants receive hands-on workshops about the functionality of the following departments in San Francisco: Police Department, Sheriff’s Department, Juvenile Probation Department, District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, and the Judiciary Branch.
