HOW WE ENGAGE

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.

Future Grads

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 an eight-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.

OUR CURRENT CIRCLE THE SCHOOLS PARTNERS

Circle the Schools is shifting the paradigm- bringing the leaders of our city into our classrooms to truly cultivate the next generation of innovators. We want students not only to better understand the opportunities available to them in our great city, but to get to know who these leaders are so they can see themselves in those roles – and that’s the promise of Circle the Schools. I want to thank the partner companies from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of 57,000 students, thank you for making a difference!
