What is Safe Passages? Safe Passages disrupts the cycle of poverty by engaging youth and families to build and drive a continuum of services that supports student success and community development. We envision a community where all young people have the opportunity to realize their full potential. Our work is based on the premises that access to educational opportunity, health services, and family support should not be dictated by race or socio-economic status, and that healthy and supported young people are better prepared to learn and succeed. We work to deliver an array of supports and services including tutoring, mentoring, work placement programs for youth, parenting programs, and many other family supports in the most marginalized communities in Alameda County and serve over 4,000 children, youth and families annually.
