Help Underprivileged Youth to see more opportunities in San Francisco

Time Commitment: Group Mentors are asked to participate one Saturday a month (usually 2.5 hours) for at least 1 year.

The mission of City of Dreams is to help youth living in low-income housing build brighter futures through mentoring and youth development.

We welcome Group Mentors who can have fun with and be role models for our youth participants (ages 9-17) during our Saturday events. Once established as a Group Mentor, you may become a 1-on-1 mentor to an individual youth.

We facilitate Saturday Experiential Learning Events at a community center in the Bayview and field trips that espouse our curriculum of 12 Life Values: 1) love without limits, 2) responsibility, 3) contribution, 4) self-esteem, 5) teamwork, 6) gratitude, 7) resilience, 8) integrity, 9) respect, 10) choice, 11) trust, and 12) hope. Our activities tie in these values and revolve around cultural enrichment, outdoor/environmental education, and community engagement.

Examples of past field trips: The Circus Center, Kite Festival at the Presidio, The Garden at AT&T Park, Oakland Museum, Biking in a local park, Cal Academy, Exploratorium

For the safety of our youth, mentors are required to submit to a background check.
