The Youth Chapter aims to advance the academic, collegiate and employment needs of youth throughout the City and County of San Francisco. This group is committed to the success of our youth through community service, positive social activities and internship opportunities.
The A. Philip Randolph Institute San Francisco is recruiting youths ages 14-18 who are interested in volunteering and earning community service hours. Check out past Youth Chapter projects and experiences below:

APRI San Francisco won the “Chapter of the Year” honors at the organization’s 43rd Annual National Conference. The award highlights the chapter with the most impressive accomplishments within the past year.
In addition to this monumental occasion, the APRI Youth Leadership Conference was held simultaneously. This portion of the conference focused on educating and uniting young people to prepare them to become leaders in their respective schools and communities. APRI San Francisco sent the most youth to attend the conference workshops. Our chapter was able to sponsor 8 youths and 2 youth leaders, ranging from 16-24 years old. For many of the participants, it was their first experiences outside of California. “It was really great to see our nation’s capital, especially the White House and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial,” said Andrezonae Johnson, who was one of our standout youth participants.
