A Bold Commitment to Education and Workforce in San Francisco
UniteSF Purpose and Goals:
Who are we?
UniteSF is the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s program that promotes collaborative education reform efforts, fosters business-education partnerships, expands college access, and provides workforce development opportunities for youth.
What are our goals?
Our ultimate goal is to increase the number of local youth who join and contribute to the innovation economy in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
We measure and share the success of San Francisco Unified, South San Francisco Unified, and SF college students as they pursue their education and career pathways.
UniteSF serves as an advocate, connector, and results tracker to support education and business leaders that want to multiply the impact of current and emerging investments in the universal goals of UniteSF. Value to the business community includes:
- Participation in cross-sector partnerships with top leaders in education, civic and business sector that are demonstrating progress in building stronger and systemic pathways for SF youth from education to careers.
- Opportunity to share and learn about successful business investments in education and workforce.
- Access to informative data and reports on the progress toward the three goals with recommendations for policies, investments and innovations that will accelerate results.
The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Foundation will function as the backbone convening entity of UniteSF ensuring that coordination is managed, identifying and tracking the metrics for each of the three goals, and most importantly, serving as the main point of contact for engaging the business community. Through UniteSF, partners will be able to connect to various workforce development and education opportunities.
