Peer Resources believes youth of color can transform conditions to achieve equity in their own lives, schools, and communities to determine their next steps and create their own opportunity. We create just change in our schools and communities through the leadership of young people supporting, training, and advocating for each other.
What We Do
Our Peer Leaders program has a long-term partnership with San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), and supports middle school and high school aged youth of color with a youth development framing within the rigor of academics, so youth can lead and increase youth voice in schools through transformative institutional change, peer-to-peer advocacy, conflict mediations, support, and training.
Our Educator Pathway programs grows educators of and for the community primarily through an academic elective for our High School Educator Pathways; additionally, we hire and train transitional age youth and Peer Resources alumni as Interns working at our school sites.
Lastly, we convene the San Francisco Educator Pathway Coalition and lead the Rising Educator Pathway of San Francisco program that supports current San Francisco youth workers who are SFUSD alumni of color in becoming educators by providing eight professional development trainings and Individual Learning Plan to support to actualize their educational goals of becoming an educator.
