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.

How can I get involved? 
You can also create your own team and start fundraising yourself for this amazing cause! Click on the link that says: JOIN THIS TEAM or FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN and create your own team page. It only takes a few minutes. 


All fundraisers are invited to a fun-filled evening of strikes, spares, colorful shoes, food and drinks at our 8th Annual Bowl for the Kids event at Presidio Bowl on August 6th. We will be honoring the life of Marcus Law and celebrating our Junior Mentor President, Bianca, heading off to college this fall, along with celebrating the dedication and hard work of our fundraisers.
