HopeSF CHAMPIONS Youth Leadership

The HOPE SF Youth Leadership Program is a powerful way to surface and invest in youth leadership in public housing. Fifteen youth are carefully selected, trained and supported to be ‘Champions’ – young people who share a passion for civic engagement, political education, and advocacy. 


The HOPE SF Champions represent the potential of youth power. Our Champions participate in an 18-month paid leadership development, service learning program that aims to disrupt hopelessness in public housing. Over their term, Champions receive over 80 hours of leadership training, intern at the San Francisco Mayor’s Office, and run youth-led projects that benefit residents in HOPE SF communities. 



The leadership program targets youth 16 to 22 years old who reside in the four HOPE SF public housing sites: Alice Griffith, Huntersview, Potrero Hill, and Sunnydale. The demographic make-up of the Champions closely align with the demographic make-up of all HOPE SF residents – 50% African American; 20% Latinx; 10% Asian; 10% Pacific Islander; 10% other.

Champions are highly motivated to be the voice of public housing. Given their lived experience, they are highly qualified and effective in conducting peer to peer community engagement and act as liaisons to residents in public housing. Champions are trusted agents of social change.

RTP (Roadmap To Peace)

Roadmap to Peace was born out of an urgent community call to action and change after six Latinx youth were killed over a five-week period in 2012 in the Mission District. In response to the shootings, the Mission Peace Collaborative, a longstanding community coalition, organized a community town hall. Attended by over 300 community members, the town hall concluded that existing systems, strategies, and policies were ineffective in addressing the needs of San Francisco’s most disconnected Latinx youth. They determined that a new, comprehensive, community-driven strategy was needed. Latinx organizations embarked on a two-year community planning process that included multiple town halls, working groups, and community report backs, resulting in a collective vision. In November 2013, that vision was identified as Roadmap to Peace (RTP).
