Mission Statement

Our Mission is to create access and opportunities for youth, living San Francisco, to explore what's possible for themselves and their lives, that motivate and empower them to create a life of their choosing. We do this by leading trips into places and spaces historically not available to them in the arts, sciences and the outdoors.

Description

Weekend-Adventures was created to alleviate poverty in marginalized communities. This includes black, brown and the poor people. But more precisely, we have our eyes set on the children and youth in these communities. We know that this a tall order, and we also know that children are our future, and if we don’t give them a promising childhood, they will not know what a bright future looks like.

Unlike other programs, Weekend-Adventures is not stationary. Our program is designed to take youth out of the neighborhood and into places and spaces that have historically been unavailable to them except MAYBE through a school field trip. What we do is plan weekend outings that take our youth on an adventure. These adventures include the arts, the outdoors and into the sciences.
