Get ahead with programs for your youth!

SFCASA is proud to support and work with organizations who provide employment, academic, and extracurricular opportunities for foster youth in San Francisco. 

There is a constant flow of incoming opportunities available to foster youth covering internships, employment, academic and extracurricular programs, training, and leadership preparation. The opportunities included below have upcoming deadlines or are time-sensitive. Please check here frequently to see what new activities, job postings, and supportive programs are available for your youth each month. 

These opportunities are first-come, first-served, and are mostly handled by organizations outside of SFCASA. 



Free Piano Lessons

When: September - May
SFCASA is partnering with Melissa Smith, a piano teacher in the San Mateo area, to offer free piano lessons to foster youth between the ages of 6-18. Potential students can travel to Melissa's studio in Redwood City, or Melissa can travel to the student for the lessons. Length of lessons vary based on youth needs and each lesson can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes based on youth skills. Please note that if Melissa travels to a youth, the youth will need to have access to a piano or keyboard on-site. Email Ayame if your youth is interested. You may click here for more information.
