Description of Organization and/or Volunteer Opportunities Available:
Huckleberry’s mission is to educate, inspire, and support underserved
youth to develop healthy life choices, to maximize their potential, and to
realize their dreams. Since 1967, we have accomplished this by providing
San Francisco and Marin youth and their families with a network of
services and opportunities by caring peers and adults.
We seek to empower young people to develop and maintain healthy
relationships as well as promote their talents, ideas, leadership and
health; to assist youth and their families in overcoming the obstacles
they may encounter, which can include family concerns, drug and alcohol
abuse, mental health challenges, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted
infections, violence, social and economic inequities, and physical and
sexual abuse; and to assist clients in navigating complex social welfare,
educational and juvenile justice systems.
Core beliefs underlying our services include respecting and affirming the
diversity of our clients, recognizing and understanding the value and
dignity of young people and acknowledging their potential to become
healthy, responsible adults.
All of Huckleberry’s services for youth and their families are provided
free of charge.
