Organization: United Playaz – Bay Area, CA
United Playaz is a violence prevention and youth development organization that has worked in San Francisco for 20 years. The UP Clubhouse is located in the heart of San Francisco’s SoMa district. Their dedicated team share similar backgrounds with the youth they serve, and they work with the key insight that communities prosper from within. They provide kids with a safe and positive environment in which they can grow. Their goal is to maintain a consistent ‘home’ that most of our kids lack in other facets of their daily lives. Their kids feel liberated when given a personal sense of security from those they can trust. Youth have the opportunity to grow from our foundation of love and support. The youth that gather at UP are very diverse; Samoan, African-American, Latino, Asian, White, and multi-racial youth are encouraged to break barriers, recognize their similarities, and form friendships.
