Mission: CHALK is a San Francisco-based non-profit organization that uses technology to empower and educate youth through innovative youth employment programs. Our flagship program is Youthline and which provides information to the community about youth-related services in San Francisco. In addition, CHALK produced the first-ever Virtual Summit on Children and Youth, in conjunction with San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown's Children and Youth Summit held in October of 1996. After the Summit, Mayor Brown was quoted in the San Francisco Examiner as saying, "CHALK is the perfect example of a new kind of community and in many ways is the perfect example of what we need to do." CHALK and MOCYF were recognized as semi-finalists for the Ford Foundation/Harvard School of Government "Innovations in American Government Award" for our collaborative work on the Virtual Summit.
Youthline San Francisco is a 12-hour a day, 7-days a week telephone-based service fully staffed and operated by young people, called "Youthline Listeners." Youthline is a toll-free service, providing callers with confidential and anonymous peer-to-peer conversation, the ability to get detailed information about all youth programs and services in San Francisco, and first-stage crisis intervention.
Call Youthline to get information about youth programs and services like after school programs, services for runaways, and lot more in San Francisco. Or if you want to just call to talk about stuff that's going on in your life, that's cool too.
