Circle the Schools is an initiative started by sf.citi in partnership with SFUSD and the San Francisco Education Fund that engages local companies to adopt schools and help ensure all students have the skills, experience and resources they need to live, work and thrive in San Francisco. Our goal is to circle all of San Francisco’s 100+ public schools and use this initiative to support the School District’s Vision 2025.
Employees participate in volunteer activities designed to advance student skills in literacy in elementary school, STEAM in middle school, and college and career readiness in high school.
Company partners expose our students to the world of work – connecting them with experiences and role models that open their eyes to the careers and industries available to them right here in San Francisco. Companies also address needs that require concentrated resources and/or people power – like setting up classrooms for back to school or hosting a book drive to gather over 500 books to fill in the gaps in a school’s library.
