San Francisco’s Most Vulnerable Young Adults Need You Now.

What is TAYSF?

In 2006, in response to urgent calls by youth advocates, former mayor Gavin Newsom named a 36 member task force comprised of the City’s advocates, providers, and funders. The task force was charged with identifying policy and practice reform that would serve young people into self sufficiency, not just until their 18th birthdays. The group developed 16 comprehensive recommendations to improve the outcomes for disconnected youth and young adults. In 2008, TAYSF, the Transitional Age Youth Initiative, was created to sustain these high priority recommendations beyond the life of the task force and to implement and enhance them.

Who is at Risk?

TAY, or transitional age youth, are youth and young adults aged 16-24 who are disconnected and marginalized. in San Francisco, 5,000-8,000 transitional age youth are homeless, underemployed, and isolated from positive communities and opportunities. They often experience systemic barriers and bureaucracy. evidence shows that these highly vulnerable populations are least likely to successfully transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency.

How can you help?

1. Build and enhance education and employment opportunities for youth and young adults.

2. Improve service coordination for transitional age youth.

3. Improve outreach services for transitional age youth and their allies.
