- DCYF’s Resources for Summer Program Providers page. Brand new as of this week, our Resources for Summer Program Providers page includes two major sections: Curriculum Resources and a San Francisco Field Trip List.
- California Academy of Sciences Field Trip Registration. Summer programs that serve San Francisco residents can apply for free field trips between June 11 and August 16! Open the Youth Group application and input the 2019 promo code (SFSUMMERINVITE). Submit multiple applications if your group would like to visit multiple times.

National Summer Learning Week is a week of advocacy, awareness, and celebration, dedicated to elevating the importance of keeping kids learning, safe, and healthy every summer, ensuring they return to school in the fall ready to succeed. National Summer Learning Week 2019 will take place from July 8-13.
In order to support Summer Learning Week celebrations in San Francisco, DCYF is seeking to fund up to ten agency collaborations to host Summer Learning Week Neighborhood Events. The events will need to promote one or all of the National Summer Learning Week themes: Literacy; STEM; Arts; College & Career Readiness; and Nutrition and Wellness, and combine those National theme(s) with San Francisco’s Summer 2019 theme: “We Are the City.” Some examples: would your team like to focus on literacy activities? Your event could be “We are Readers!” STEM programming? “We Are Scientists!” College & Career Readiness? “We Will Succeed!” Nutrition and Wellness? “We Are Healthy!” There are no hard and fast rules – have fun and be creative with it!
Applications are due by May 17
Over 70 sites in every San Francisco neighborhood will offer free lunches and afternoon snacks to children and youth ages 18 and under every Monday through Friday from June 5 to August 16. No proof of need, registration, or identification is required in order to receive a lunch or snack. The only requirement: arrive at a designated site during any open site’s serving time.
Visit the map at the link below to find a site near you. All sites will be clearly marked with large exterior banners. You can also look for the official Summer Meals poster, which is in the image above. The poster was created by Sabrina, the winner of SFUSD’s High School Summer Meals Poster Contest!
