Good Samaritan wants diverse young people to see and act on their potential. We believe each should have an adult ally and a supportive peer network at school.
ADVANCING LATINO SUCCESS AT LOCAL SCHOOLS
Good Samaritan partners with artists, outdoor educators, clinicians, Latino leaders and educators to advance equity at schools with large Latino populations. Our school partnerships bring our youth development experts to run these programs during the school year:
ADVANCING MIDDLE SCHOOL SUCCESS IN THE BAYVIEW NEIGHBORHOOD
The Beacon Initiative transforms public schools into safe spaces where children, youth, parents, educators and community members can unite to promote healthy child development.
In 2018, Bayview-based Willie Brown Middle School (WBMS) selected Good Samaritan to launch a City-funded Beacon Center at the school. With guidance from WBMS educators, students and parents, Good Samaritan’s Beacon Center will offer intensive school-year supports to 150 of the school’s diverse students.
WBMS selected Good Samaritan based on its track record designing and operating the popular Vision Academy, a computer science, chess, and social-emotional enrichment program for elementary and middle school students in the Bayview.
