Congratulations to The Class Of 2016!

Help Fund A Scholar

The scholarships, fully funded by individual donors, are $3000 per year for four years for a student attending a university, and a $1500 per year for a student attending a community college (that increases to $3000 per year when the student transfers to a university).

Our Services

College Access & Scholarship Funding

Up to $3,000/year in scholarship funds and in-depth check-ins, which occur a minimum of twice a year and as often as every week, depending on each student’s individual needs.

Mentoring

Each student accepted into the program is matched with a mentor who works collaboratively with staff to help the Scholar solve problems and learn new strategies for success, empowering the student to remove barriers on their own.

Summer Internships

We place Achievers in a variety of career-specific summer internships (e.g. the City and County of San Francisco’s Project Pull) to develop on-the-job skills and experience and prepare students for life after college.

Leadership Academy

Through partnerships with companies and community based organizations such as LinkedIn and College Track, we are able to offer college ready workshops with an emphasis on their social media presence.

High School Support Programs

We strive to create a rich dialogue between each other in order to understand how to become better students, better leaders, and better men.

Jerry Johnson

One of our scholars, Jerry Johnson, recently told us that his ability to succeed had always been doubted; his friends, and even his family members, told him he would drop out of school and do drugs because bad behavior “ran in his blood.”

David Miles

David Miles was in the pitch blackness. He was in a dark cave in Yosemite with no light and the only way he could navigate out of it was with the help of his fellow San Francisco Achievers. Read More
