San Francisco Department of Children, Youth & Their Families
Getting in some after school story time with DCYF grantee Growth & Learning Opportunities (GLO). Read on for more info on the Summer Stride Reading Program!
Hello from DCYF!

DCYF Releases Highlights of DCYF Services and Citywide Investments Summary 

DCYF brings together City government, schools, and community based organizations to help our city’s children and youth, birth to age 24, and their families lead lives full of opportunity and happiness. Through our work we help our community to:

• Succeed in school and prepare for the future.
• Engage in positive activities when school is out. 
• Live in safe and supported communities.

During the week of April 18, DCYF released two documents that tell more of our story: Highlights of DCYF Services and DCYF Citywide Investments Summary.

Based on data from fiscal year 2014-2015, the highlight and summary include data on the overall number of San Francisco residents served by DCYF, the total amounts invested in each of DCYF's funding strategies, demographic information, youth survey results, and more.

Earlier this year DCYF released investment summaries for each of San Francisco's eleven supervisorial districts - access those reports at this link.

To view more information about DCYF, our grantees, and the children, youth, and families we serve, visit the (newly revamped!) Data, Evaluation & Reports page of the DCYF website.

Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week Starts Today!

April 25-29 is the first ever National Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week!

Nationally, an estimated 850,000 afterschool professionals serve 10.2 million children each year. Afterschool programs are widely credited as the best way to enhance education in STEM, literacy, the arts, social and emotional learning, health and wellness, and more. The goal of National Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week is to raise awareness of the vital role afterschool processionals play in the lives of children in the United States, and to show gratitude for their work. 

We started our newsletter this month with documents that show who is served by DCYF funding and how we allocate the Children and Youth Fund. We want to acknowledge and show some major gratitude for he incredible work and dedication of afterschool professionals in San Francisco, who are the front line of making San Francisco a great place to grow up! Thank you!!

DCYF Awards Additional Grants for Disconnected Transitional Age Youth RFP

In November 2015 DCYF issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to identify and fund strategies to improve outcomes for disconnected Transitional Age Youth (TAY). For the purposes of the RFP and as defined by Charter Section 16.108 of the Children and Families First Legislation, disconnected TAY are defined as young people ages 18-24 who:

• Are homeless or in danger of homelessness;
• Have dropped out of high school;
• Have a disability or other special needs, including substance abuse;
• Are low-income parents;
• Are undocumented;
• Are new immigrants and/or English learners;
• Are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning ("LGBTQQ"); and/or
• Are transitioning from the foster care, juvenile justice, criminal justice or special education system.

The RFP sought applicants for two distinct strategies:

Lead agencies coordinate a collaborative effort to improve educational and employment outcomes for disconnected TAY ages 18-24, building on existing agency, partner and community resources.

Multiple grants available ranging from $50,000-$100,000 designed to address gaps or barriers in existing TAY services.

DCYF originally awarded grants to two programs for the Collaboration strategy, and awarded grants to five programs for the Innovation strategy. After consulting with TAY-serving agencies, community stakeholders, our Oversight & Advisory Committee, and our staff, DCYF has decided to award a grant to one additional program for the Collaboration strategy, and to award grants to four additional programs for the Innovation strategy. Below are the additional programs DCYF has selected for funding:

Innovation Model

All TAY RFP grant contracts will start in 2016 and conclude on June 30, 2018.

The guide includes specific resources for creative arts, language arts and literacy, outdoor education, and S.T.E.M. programs, and also includes a "Master Field Trips List."
