The San Francisco Junior Deputy Academy is a year-round youth leadership program, taught by San Francisco Sheriff Deputies, for youth between 9 and 18 years. The program introduces young people to a broad array of public service careers, role-playing, and physical training. All participants are required to attend  bi -weekly meetings and successfully complete the Junior Deputy advanced training academy offered during  the summer.


This youth empowerment program is designed to encourage young people through opportunities in media and visual arts to help them share their vision and develop their full talents as human beings through the mastery of media arts, public speaking, group facilitation, critical thinking, and communications. This youth media program is designed so that young people ages 10 to 18 can make anything from a mixtape to a movie with instant access to high-end computers, studio equipment, and cameras. We offer weekly schedule of classes, clubs, workshops, video game tournaments, and movie screenings.


Go Beyond The Arc

Go Beyond the Arc will provide opportunities for low income, foster youth, and children of incarcerated parent’s youth ages 7 to 18 to participate in organized sports that will help them regain a sense of normalcy. Often youth in these at-risk groups deal with an enormous amount of issues, such as feelings of abandonment, resentment, and worthlessness. Go Beyond The Arc aims to counter these issues by awarding several scholarships to youth who want to join local youth sports teams or clubs of their choice (i.e., Pop Warner, AAU, CYO) or to any of our specialized sports clinics.


Aviation Academy 

The San Francisco Junior Deputy Aviation Academy transforms youth into dynamic citizens and aviation leaders through a curriculum that focuses on four elements: leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character. As you participate in these four fundamentals, you advance through a series of achievements, earning honors and increased responsibilities along the way. Many of the nation's astronauts, pilots, engineers, scientists, military, and law enforcement first explored their careers through similar programs like San Francisco Junior Deputy Aviation Program.
