Youth & Teens

TEL HI’s youth and teen programs are different. They aren’t simply a place to “keep kids out of fb56trouble.” They consciously strive to create the next generation of community leaders by providing social connections, adult support, and youth empowerment.

Youth and teens from 6th grade through high school have access to the following:

With an ethnic mix of Asian, Latino-Mexican, African-American, Caucasian, and Multiracial/Other, our youth/teen community stays active and engaged all year long. Last summer alone TEL HI recorded an average daily attendance of 150+ students and over 29,000 of staff service hours.

A Beacon of Activity

Several of TEL HI’s youth and teen programs are offered in conjunction with the San Francisco Beacon Initiative, a public-private partnership that transforms public schools into youth and family centers. TEL HI was chosen to manage North Beach-Chinatown Beacon Center, which gives us a way to reach even more people who may need our services.
