Through the power of storytelling, Streetside Stories cultivates young people's voices to develop literacy and arts skills, fosters educational equity, values diversity, and builds community.
Streetside Stories’ arts education programs work at the intersection of creativity and educational equity to strengthen the voices and improve the outcomes of at-risk youth in struggling urban communities. Over the last 24 years, we have helped over 19,000 Bay Area students share their true stories, connect with the arts, and improve their literacy skills.<br/><br/>External evaluator WestEd and government partner the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and their Families (DCYF), have collected evaluation and assessment data about Streetside Stories’ impact on our students. This data shows that Streetside’s work builds community, boosts student success in the arts and literacy, and increases teacher effectiveness. Streetside has been evaluated and assessed by these partners eight times between 2006 and 2012.<br/><br/>Streetside Stories has beenrecognized as a national model for arts education five times by the U.S. Department of Education. DCYF has identified Streetside as an agent for after-school program quality improvement and funded our programs in some of the city’s most challenging areas. In 2011, Streetside began a three-year partnership with the City of San Francisco, funded by a prestigious Broadband Technology Opportunities Program grant from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.<br/><br/>Recently, Streetside was chosen by the Mission Economic Development Agency as an education partner under their prestigious Promise Neighborhoods Grant from the Department of Education. As a Promise Neighborhoods partner, Streetside will provide programming for hundreds of elementary students and their teachers at low-performing schools throughout San Francisco’s Mission District from 2014 – 2018. This literacy and media arts programming will help teachers use our best practices in their classrooms for years to come.
