Mission Statement

First Exposures is a San Francisco-based, nationally recognized youth mentoring program that strives to make a major long-term difference in the lives of high-need, underserved San Francisco Bay Area youth by providing a venue for them to enhance their self-confidence, develop their creativity, and gain a passion for learning. Cited as a model program by the State of California, First Exposures serves youth 11-18, who are referred to the program by a wide range of youth and social services organizations with which First Exposures partners.

Since the program's founding in 1993, over 95 percent of our students have gone on to pursue a college education.
