sf.citi creates opportunities for meaningful employee engagement and corporate social responsibility programming for our member companies, primarily focused on STEM education and workforce development. Through our flagship programs sf.citi members are training the next generation of homegrown tech talent right here in San Francisco.
In partnership with the San Francisco Police Foundation, sf.citi’s Future Grads brings San Francisco high school students out of the classroom and into company offices to gain hands-on work experience. Over the course of a seven-week paid summer internship, students learn from members of our tech industry, while host company employees have the rewarding opportunity to mentor future tech workers. In the summer of 2017, the program’s sixth year, 42 students prepared for future careers in coding, marketing, sales, QA, data analysis, and other in demand careers. A component of the Mayor’s office Summer Jobs+ Initiative, the program prepares students for future success and fulfilling careers. Learn more about the program’s history and impact here.
