Get Involved


The Architectural Foundation of San Francisco offers many opportunities for involvement from the greater San Francisco community. Our programs reach large numbers of school children and provide them with insights into the world of design that they might not receive in the course of their regular instructional day. In order to meet our commitment to these kids, we need your support. If you are interested in participating in one of our programs as a volunteer, a mentor, or a resource please contact us through

Current needs:

The Build San Francisco Institute Program:

  • Volunteers with design skills to help with instruction
  • Art supplies and office supplies
  • Books for our library
  • Mentors for our students (see the information below)

Become a Mentor

Every Build San Francisco student receives credit by working with a mentor two afternnons each week. Mentors are working professionals who are paired with students that are interested in the work of that profession. Mentors meet regularly with the students and give students a first-hand look by involving them in the work of their firm. The Build San Franciso program has met with strong support from the entire building community including architects, engineers, general contractors, developers and policy organizations. We need your assistance in this effort to offer this opportunity to an increasing number of students. If you or your firm is interested in becoming a mentor, please email Will Fowler at
