Testimonials — See what students and parents are saying about the impact of Youth SF. 


I really want to take this opportunity to say thank you, because if it weren’t for this school and Youth SF I really don’t know where I would be right now – I don’t know who I would be. I’m just so happy about where I am right now.
— Dirk H., Hight School Student
 
My Youth SF scholarship has given me the opportunity to continue my education, and through my education I’ve grown and developed a better sense of who I am today.
— Sandy L., High School Student
 
It’s amazing what hope can do. As a parent I was given a choice and the freedom to choose a better education for my children. I was able to put my child in an environment where they are nurtured, empowered and hopeful, and where they could shine; and can change the world.

Our son received a scholarship from Youth SF. He has thrived his academic environment with his peers. We were so glad he’s had the opportunity to participate through the the aid given to us. We hope to see this program grow so that many other students can benefit from the experience of being a Youth SF scholar. Also, I’d like to to convey my gratitude for all those involved with Youth SF.
— John Simic, Parent
 
Without the scholarships I received from Youth SF, I would not be where I am today. I never would have had the opportunity to meet all of my great friends, or the teachers and staff at my current school who are genuinely thrilled to help and watch me grow and progress as an individual and guide me through the processes necessary to get into college. Apply to Youth SF has been one of the greatest things I have even been able to do so far for myself in life, and it never would have been possible without the help and support of this vital program.”Freshman, Animation
