Though I have only recently started working at SMART, my mission has been to improve the lives of children and youth (especially those that simply lack opportunity) through education; and SMART does just that. These past few months have allowed me to get to know and connect with so many of the incredible youth of San Francisco, and to clearly see how a program like SMART supports both them and their families. I've met scholars that are bold and vocal, kind and compassionate, and strong and resilient. I hope you will consider giving back and helping them achieve the bright and beautiful future they deserve.
*SMART is a comprehensive eight-year program that provides low-income students in San Francisco access to an exceptional education and the skills needed to thrive in college and in life. SMART’s vision is to end the cycle of poverty in San Francisco by providing students and families financial, academic, and social emotional support, as well as college preparation and career exploration.
