What is City of Dreams?
City of Dreams' youth and teens live in one of the city’s most challenged neighborhoods in San Francisco. They face many negative influences every day, which often leads to dangerous and unproductive activities. In this community, only 1 in 4 will graduate from high school and exposure to gangs, drugs, and violence is the norm.
At City of Dreams, we have proven to change these negative odds through youth development, mentorship, and by offering a safe and supportive community center for our neighborhood youth.
We want to continue to offer our youth and teens opportunities to learn, grow, and reach their fullest potential. Historically, 80% of our operating budget relies solely on the money we raise each year. We are determined to raise at least $10,000 to keep our program operating, and we can only do that WITH YOUR HELP.
