Our mission is to create a cadre of college-ready students from San Francisco's low-wealth communities to begin and complete post-secondary education.
100% College Prep, a program of Bayview Association for Youth, provides academic resources for 8th-12th grade students from San Francisco's low-wealth communities, with a particular emphasis on youth residing in the Bayview/Hunters Point. Each year, we inspire hundreds of young people, who might not otherwise consider college, to set and achieve high academic goals and go on to earn postsecondary degrees.
We match students with a team of academic coaches and tutors from local colleges and universities. They help them improve their academic standing as they learn how to navigate the pathways to college entrance and financing a college education. These coaches are available to students at several middle and high schools throughout San Francisco, at the Alice Griffith public housing development, and at our main location, 1201 Mendell St.
Our public and private partnerships allow us to create multi-faceted programs where students can thrive as they explore education and career opportunities. We work to implement systemic change and close educational achievement gaps for students of color alongside organizations including the San Francisco Unified School District, the SF Alliance of Black School Educators, My Brother’s/Sister’s Keeper, and College Bound Brotherhood.
