If you're a young person in San Francisco and need some help accessing counseling, getting your own apartment, or getting ready for college, we are here to help you!

Youth & Health Development

College Jump

We had a blast touring the UC Berkeley and University of San Francisco (USF) campuses with our College Jump participants last month! In case you haven’t heard, College Jump offers free college counseling and career guidance to any young person who is thinking about going to college or getting ready to apply. Our dynamic approach to college readiness includes a College Jump workshop, individualized college planning, and other helpful resources!
