The Architectural Foundation of San Francisco (AFSF) is a non-profit educational organization that involves San Francisco elementary and secondary public school students through a mentored appreciation of architecture, engineering, construction and the design process.
The keynote speakers have included noted designer Alexander Julian, SFUSD Superintendent Carlos Garcia, Milton Chen, Executive Director, The George Lucas Educational Foundation, David Macaulay, author and illustrator, Dr. Tom Peters, President and CEO of the Marin Community Foundation, Dr. Sandra Hernandez, CEO of the San Francisco Foundation, Keith Wheeler, President and CEO of the Foundation for Our Future at the Center for a Sustainable Future in Shelburne Vermont, and Moy Eng, Program Director of the Performing Arts Program and The William and Flora Hewitt Foundation.
Proceeds from the event are used to support the Foundation’s educational programs, particularly our Build San Francisco Institute, a part of the San Francisco Unified School District’s Secondary School Redesign Initiative. This is an opportunity for SFUSD high school juniors and seniors to participate in an experiential learning program in architecture and urban design. Offering classes and mentorships in the afternoon hours of the school day, the Build San Francisco Institute introduces the students to the real world of urban planning and design, providing them a unique opportunity to become involved in the development of San Francisco.
Students from the Build San Francisco InstituteLast year’s breakfast showcased AFSF Build San Francisco programs. Both the morning Independence High School program and the afternoon Build San Francisco Institute mentorship program were recognized for their outstanding work this year.
