For nearly a century, the Booker T. Washington Community Service Center has served the children and families of San Francisco with programs designed to reduce the many disparities faced by African American, immigrant and other low-income communities. More recently, the center has expanded programs to address the influx of new immigrant communities and address the needs of transition aged youth. We offer pragmatic programs to empower youth to integrate into the economic and social mainstream of society, and to counter trends of unemployment, violence, and academic failure in our communities.
