Helping build bridges to opportunity
The CSI Internship provides an opportunity for youth to gain project management skills our partners are critical to the experience.
Public Safety & Hope SF
From outreach to placements to funding wages, the Mayor's office has been an integral partner. Deputy Chief of Staff Paul Henderson and Hope SF Director Theo Miller looked beyond the words public safety and focused on the addressing root causes- truancy, income inequality, trauma
SF Human Rights
Staff & Commissioners
The Human Rights Commission opened supported a cohort for five weeks, providing space and staff to work with the youth. The youth learned about the Fair Chance ordinance and explored outreach strategies.
COMMISSION & DEPARTMENT
President Suzy Loftus and Chief Greg Suhr made a commitment to the program and youth participating. The Commission and SFPD dedicated time and resources to the project, believing it beneficial to hear youth recommendations and implement them.
youth development & Support
Offering youth a chance to earn money during the summer only lasts for the summer; we seek to create lasting experiences. Community partners support skill development, case management for trauma or behavioral health issues and connect youth with other resources they might need.
Tech , culinary, Education, STEM
Our industry partners provide placements for youth, visits to their sites and professional expertise. Whether it's understanding their digital footprint on their future or navigating networking and thinking about first impressions. Comcast, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn offered weekly visits, projects and mentors to the CSI interns.
