This project will help take our organization to the next level for many years to come as our new identity as a youth development organization instead of just a scholarship organization.
San Francisco Achievers is a community-based non-profit organization providing college scholarships and mentoring services to African-American male high school students in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). The mission of San Francisco Achievers is to reduce the achievement gap of African American young men in San Francisco high schools through support, mentoring, and college scholarships.
San Francisco Achievers provides a holistic approach to serving the needs of young Black male students in San Francisco. We offer programs to support students and help them gain the skills needed to compete in today's competitive academic and social environments.
Elena was wonderful and very knowledgeable on ways to adapt our information to activities that will make our retreat truly impactful!
Working with Duane at SF Achievers really stretched my facilitation skills and I'm all the more excited for the outcome! This was the first time developing a facilitated session where I was not the intended facilitator. Thus, I had to approach this work with deeper empathy and listening to best understand how to serve a facilitated agenda for a team I've never met for their staff retreat. Super thankful for Duane's clear vision, his push-back on ideas that he felt may not necessarily serve his team best, and generative conversations that helped make this process truly collaborative.
