WHERE YOUTH BECOME LEADERS

Share

We’re back, and we need YOUR help getting our parks into tip-top shape! Our volunteers are currently helping us get thousands of plants into the ground during a critical time, clear backlogged projects, and restore our parks to their full beauty. We're excited to get back out in the parks and roll up our sleeves with you!

If you're looking to help, the best place to start is with our weekly volunteer programs, and see our events calendar for even more. We’ll see you out here!

Marquis Engle is the program director at Up on Top, an after-school and summer program in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood.
