Transitional Age Youth San Francsico (TAYSF)


TAYSF is collaborative network of city departments, service providers, and young people who are committed to improving outcomes for transitional age young people in San Francisco.

TAYSF Works for a City Where

  • All young adults have access to affordable, safe, and stable housing
  • All young adults are physically healthy & emotionally resilient
  • All young adults attain educational achievement in preparation for career and community participation, including a high school diploma, postsecondary degree and/or vocational certificate training
  • All young adults are gainfully employed with living wages and benefits and/or have access to career training to achieve life-long economic stability
  • All young adults have connections to a positive support system, including guidance from family members and caring adults

As of July 2012, the TAYSF team’s work transitioned into San Francisco’s Department of Children, Youth, & their Families (DCYF), including San Francisco’s number one resource website for TAY:

Designed by and for young adults as a response to the ongoing need for better and more accessible information on existing programs and services for transitional age youth, includes comprehensive and up-to-date listings of all programs and services available to disconnected 16-24 year olds on one central site.

Years since the Mayor’s Transitional Youth Task Force, TAYSF’s mission to improve the system of support for disconnected young adults remains vital to our City’s future, and we applaud the Mayor’s Office and DCYF for taking on the responsibility of seeing it through.
