More Than Just a Safe Place


Growth and Learning Opportunities – GLO- here to serve our mission of “empowering youth and families to be leaders toward equitable communities”. In meeting this mission, we are equipping youth with the tools necessary to blossom into respectable adults so that they may continue the foundation of leading and giving back to their communities. In striving to reach this goal, we provide after school programming at 6 elementary schools in San Francisco. We operate a fun and engaging summer camp open to all Bay Area elementary aged children. We provide enrichment opportunities that enhance and reinforce what our children are learning during the school day. We provide hands on training opportunities for our staff, many of whom are college students embarking on a career path to being a Credentialed Teacher, School Administrator and/or Youth Worker. We offer our families a safe place to learn and thrive.

  • “Our family cannot begin to express our gratitude for all the hard work, effort, love, and dedication shown to our children.  This was our first experience with afterschool and we could not have chosen a better place for our children to grow, learn, and develop.  As a mom returning to the workplace, you gave me and my family the confidence.” GLO Parent
