    Overview

    The Tenderloin After-School Program provides a safe space for children and youth to grow, learn, and have fun. Our programming reflects the cultural diversity of our participants and the community.

    TASP’s vision is based on the belief in the inherent value of children and youth from this community and their ability to grow, thrive, and succeed. TASP is a safe place for kids to express themselves socially, artistically, creatively, and physically through individual and group activities. TASP’s programming strives for great diversity in the daily scheduling of events and activities – a diversity necessary to occupy the very active minds of the children.

    TASP’s work is guided by youth development principles and best practices from the Out-of-School-Time industry. These encompass five broad areas:

    1. Emotional and Physical Safety
    2. Relationship Building
    3. Youth Participation
    4. Skill Building
    5. Community Involvement

    The program serves more than 250 youth ages 7 -18 and their families. The majority of participants are from the Tenderloin District neighborhood, but some children travel from other neighborhoods in San Francisco to attend. More than 65 children attend the center Monday through Saturday. The program includes a homework room, kitchen & snack area, small library, a teen room, computer lab, two play rooms that are used for science, art, and other workshops, and a main program area used for physical activities like hip hop dance workshops.
