The ambitious men who are admitted into the Leadership Academy are also granted:

Other resources such as: a personal mentor, access to brotherhood bonding outings and activities, one-on-one college advising and preparation assistance, the chance to meet and network with college admissions officers, internship and job opportunities, and the occasion to develop professional skills and mindsets.


Up to $3,000/year in scholarship funds and in-depth check-ins, which occur a minimum of twice a year and as often as every week, depending on each student’s individual needs.

Since its founding, SF Achievers has provided 162 scholarships to African American males who achieved at least a 2.5 high school GPA. "The scholarships, fully funded by individual donors, are:

$3,000 per year for four years for a student attending a university

$1,500 per year for a student attending a community college (that increases to $3000 per year when the student transfers to a university)

The Impact of our Support

David Booth-Metwally, SF State University, '14 & David Miles III, San Jose State University, '12
Currently, 67% of SF Achievers have graduated or are on track to graduate (the national average for this cohort is 23%). By providing scholarships, SF Achievers removes the financial burden that is a predominant factor in students either dropping out of school or selecting more affordable schools with low graduation rates (a trend also known as undermatching).


Help us help our scholars unlock their full potential and ensure that they are full and active participants in our society.


San Francisco Achievers has been at the forefront of this journey, and we look forward to working with you as you continue to spread hope and expand opportunity for young African American males in the years to come.
