UP ON TOP was founded by members of the Unitarian Universalist Society in San Francisco's Western Addition neighborhood in 2001 with a mission to provide free childcare and support services to neighborhood families.
Today, 22 years later, our mission is to provide YEAR-ROUND, TUITION-FREE after-school and summer programs, consisting of academic assistance, enrichment opportunities, recreational activities, neighborhood exploration, community service and family support services to K-5th grade students and their families.
Open to all, UP ON TOP proudly provides services in San Francisco's Tenderloin & Western Addition neighborhoods in an INCLUSIVE, CULTURALLY-DIVERSE, and RESPECTFUL manner to participants, families, staff and partners.
Further, UP ON TOP provides employment and professional training opportunities to ALL STUDENTS who complete our program. It is a core tenant of our program that our staff will not only reflect our community but will set an example for its diversity, inclusion and professional development opportunities.
