SUMMER RESOURCE FAIR

Organized by Dept of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) and the Rec & Park Department
Over 200 exhibitors will be on hand with information about summer programs and camps for every age group, from toddlers to teens to and everything in between. The Resource Fair is also a lot of fun: Rec & Park’s Mobile Rec Unit will be on site with their climbing wall and other activities, and we’re bringing in several bounce castles and an obstacle course! The Fair is free to attend, and to participate in as an exhibitor.
Parents for Public School-SF (PPS-SF) has served hundreds families in District 7 over the past two years. They’ve served many more over the span of our 17 year history in the city. Their multilingual programming provides families with the resources they need to get to and through their student’s public education journey. They’re hosting an April 23 family friendly Yogathon fundraiser to help them continue their programming to continue serving our community.
Stay up to date on school district issues by visiting The Newsroom. Parents for Public Schools also organizes Enrollment Workshops to guide families through the SF public school enrollment process. Spread the word!
