DCYF’s Youth Empowerment Fund is seeking 15 staff to participate in the Youth On Fire 2013-14 Cohort.  This is a FREE professional development for staff from community-based organizations that directly work with teens in San Francisco and want to institute stronger and more effective youth empowerment practices.
