Black to the Future

Black to the Future

Black to the Future is a call to action for African American community empowerment in San Francisco. It is a city-supported, community-driven collaborative that strengthens services in the areas of:

  • Family Support and Advocacy
  • Education
  • Health and Wellness
  • Workforce Development
  • Violence Prevention

San Francisco’s black residents aged 14 to 24 and 25 to 35 are known to have the highest unmet needs, and the latter group has the lowest connection to services of any cohort. Black to the Future’s goal is to engage youth and young adults around a continuum of culturally competent services that consider their role in family, community and the overall landscape of San Francisco.
