Career Pathways

Preparing young talent to thrive in San Francisco's workforce

Our Mission

SFUSD Career Pathways address barriers so that students have access to career exploration, practice and mastery of technical skills, and early-college course work. 

In partnership with over 500 community and industry partners, we serve over 3,500 students each year.

From Culinary to Biotech, all 45 pathway programs cultivate critical thinking, technical literacy, public speaking, and leadership skills. Our goal is that each student has college and career exposure to make informed decisions about their educational path after high school, and has the work skills to thrive in the San Francisco workforce.
