We believe every young person deserves to thrive.

Let's make it happen.


During the fall of 2019, we hired a cohort of Youth Founders to design the HYPE Center and to inform the mission, services, and resources. This founding process involved designing and conducting a survey of other youth to determine needs in the community; developing a name, mission, and logo; identifying and interviewing initial partners and services; deciding on how the building's space would be used and setting up the space; and developing the Center's wishlist to best reflect the needs and interests of Bay Area youth.
