THE STORY:

Hello!

Please join me in supporting this wonderful nonprofit that I am priviledged to be a part of.  City of Dreams helps youth in one of SF's most challenging neighborhoods through both 1:1 mentoring as well as weekly, structured developmental activities and outings. 

Personally, this has been a very rewarding experience for me.  I've learned a tremendous amount from my mentee, the other mentors/mentees, and the leaders of the program.  It has offered me so much perspective and appreciation for what I have been blessed with, and I hope to support the youth in the program and provide them similar opportunities.  I would be grateful for your support of City of Dreams.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the program.  Thank you for your consideration and support!

 

Best,

Paul

 

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.
