The mission of Community Educational Services is to develop children and youth to transform their lives, schools, and communities. CES was created in 1969 by young activists in San Francisco to increase the educational achievement, employment success and community leadership of recently arrived Chinese immigrant teenagers. Since then, CES has expanded its mission so that it now annually provides educational, arts, career readiness, fitness, music, outdoor education, mentoring, youth leadership, and other services to over 2,500 children and youth of all backgrounds at thirteen school and community sites in San Francisco.
At the elementary school level, CES runs academic tutoring and enrichment programs at eight local public elementary schools through our partner Chinatown Beacon Center. The main funder for this afterschool program, serving over 600 students, is the San Francisco Unified School District. At the middle school level, CES partners with Francisco Connection to provide comprehensive support services for Francisco Middle School Students including mentoring, counseling and mental health, tutoring, and parent partnerships program. For teenagers, CES operates a Health Academy at Galileo High School in partnership with California Pacific Medical Center, which introduces and trains students on careers health profession. Additionally, CES houses a city wide youth employment program through the Mayor's Youth Employment and Education Program, a high school radio production program, outdoor education club, and various community service and youth leadership groups.
