The SPWG is a membership driven organization made up of individuals who believe in building a more equitable and supportive San Francisco for children, youth, and their families. All of our members work in the youth development field in San Francisco, many of which also have children of their own. Our members serve in a variety of different positions in the field including direct service providers, Executive Directors, Program Managers, and more. We leverage our members’ expertise and lived experiences to inform our day to day priorities, strategies, and efforts. As a membership driven organization, we expect members to be vocal and outspoken about what they are experiencing in order to leverage the SPWG to raise awareness and/or problem-solve. There are four different categories of membership as defined below.
