Congratulations Future Grads!
Another successful summer with our Future Grads interns came to a close this past week. In partnership with the San Francisco Police Foundation, we provided local high school students with an 8-week, fully paid internship at an sf.citi member tech company or nonprofit organization. This summer, the students worked everywhere from the Architectural Foundation of San Francisco to AdRoll, learning a wide range of technical and interpersonal skills. These students have an incredible future ahead of them; we are so proud of everything they accomplished this summer. Future Grads would not be possible without our partner companies and the SFPD. Your commitment to changing our community for the better is truly admirable.
Sign up for next summer by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. You can make a difference in your community!
Bridging the Technological Divide in SF
In 2012, Mayor Lee created the TechSF initiative with the goal of providing education, training, and employment services to jobseekers. With the help of a new grant, TechSF launched Apprenticeship Accelerator, a program that provides companies with a pipeline of diverse and local talent. By placing these new employees through customized, position-based training, the program strives to increase productivity, lower turnover, and reduce employer recruitment costs. Since its inception, sf.citi has been proud to partner with TechSF and assist in advancing their mission to help all benefit from the growth of the technology industry.

Deadline Extended: Join Circle the Schools
Nestled amongst the tech capital that is the Bay Area, students in San Francisco’s public schools should have unparalleled access to 21st-century classes and cutting edge technology – however, this is not the current reality. In order to cultivate the next generation of innovators, it is crucial that we make sure our local public schools offer world-class technical education. Don’t miss the opportunity to join dozens of Circle the Schools companies striving to ensure that students in San Francisco have the necessary skills, resources, and experience to succeed. Throughout the school year, employees lead volunteer events, ranging from coding classes to career readiness training. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with your community. The deadline to sign up for Circle the Schools has been extended another week – join today!
