Who We Are: Huckleberry Youth Programs is a non-profit providing critical intervention and preventative care to underserved youth in the Bay.
We are guided by our mission to educate, inspire and support underserved youth to develop healthy life choices, to maximize their potential, and to realize their dreams.
In 1967, Huckleberry opened its flagship program, Huckleberry House, the first runaway youth shelter in the nation, at a time when running away as a youth was considered a crime. Fifty years later, we have grown to provide 6,500 youth annually with a continuum of services that remains rooted, just as it did in 1967, in the fundamental rights of young people to be safe, healthy, educated, and treated justly.
What We Do: Over the years, our services have grown to include primary and reproductive care, counseling, case management, health education, juvenile justice diversion, and college access to underserved youth and families. Huckleberry’s longevity is a testament to the agency’s values, and our ability to adapt and grow to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Each year, we host two major FUNdraisers along with smaller, socials gatherings like Cocktails for a Cause/bar nights, exclusive dining experiences and shows/performances.
What We Are Looking For: Young professionals who are passionate about our mission, and interested in using their knowledge, skills, expertise and network to raise awareness and mobilize support for Huckleberry Youth Programs within the community.
