What if my child gets sick while out on an outing?
In case of an illness that cannot be remedied by rest and water, the program leader will promptly notify the parent/guardian and make arrangements for the child to be picked up early. Our illness policy is outlined in the parental agreement.
How do I get in touch with the program leader when they are out?
Parents/guardians are given the direct cell number for the program leader and information on the day’s activities.
How much does the program cost?
Weekend Adventures is a free program, thanks to our generous Donors and Sponsors.
Who do you serve?
We serve youth/children in San Francisco City and County who live in neighborhoods that have gone unchecked and as a result are filled with adversity such as drug sales and usage, violence and extreme filth.
How do I sign my child up for your program?
You can join the adventure by signing up on on our Program page.
How long is the program?
Each program runs six weeks, six consecutive Saturdays.
Is this an overnight program?
No, we are a day program and do not have any overnight trips.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are insured.
What other security measures have you taken to ensure the safety of my child?
Each volunteer, who works directly or indirectly with our youth, have gone through a thorough background check. During COVID-19, we have adopted the SFDPH guidelines to reduce exposure to our participants. We have also reduced the number of participants in each cohort from eight to five.
Does your staff know First Aid/CPR?
Yes, all volunteers and staff, who work directly with our youth, have been trained in First Aid and CPR.
What’s the ratio of child/youth to adult?
Because of COVID-19, our adult to youth ratio has been reduced from eight to five. So the ratio is 1:5.
