Promoting Healthy Development

Building Capacity to Effect Change in Communities

Encouraging Volunteerism

BACR Youth Leadership and Workforce Development programs support young people to make positive decisions about their education, employment, and behavioral health. Program activities are youth-led, foster civic engagement, and provide opportunities for youth to learn to be productive, connect, and navigate. Our youth leadership programs employ a program model that ensures participants have on-site access to five key service areas: (1) academic support, (2) workforce skill building, (3) civic engagement, (4) connection to support services, and (5) meaningful participation in youth development activities.

Our programs and outreach activities are delivered in a range of school and community-based settings in San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties.
