About the Youth Academy
The SF Fire Youth Academy has been serving youth across the City and County of San Francisco for over 15 years. Our students learn skills and principles which help them thrive in an ever-changing city. Aside from an introduction to fire service, our curriculum includes CPR certification, mental health and wellness, financial literacy, team building, nutrition, and goal setting. Mentorship is also key to ensuring our students have consistent and positive role models.
Some of the firefighting skills taught include:
Basic Emergency Care
Search and Rescue
Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Application
Donate to the Youth Academy
The Fire Youth Academy depends on the invaluable and generous financial support of corporate and individual donations. Your donations make it possible for the SFBFA to offer underprivileged students the best opportunities to succeed and thrive in fire service or whatever path they chose to take.
Our program collaborates with community-based organizations to support the Youth Academy and to continue to inspire, empower and engage our students.
