A core tenet of HOPE SF is that the community must be engaged for neighborhood and public housing transformation efforts to be successful. Youth, who make up nearly 50% of the current Hunters View population, are essential to this effort.

With funding from the Bay Tree Fund and support from the Center for Cities and Schools of UC Berkeley , Hunters View Associates has commissioned Dr. Shirl Buss to establish and continue the Young People’s Think Tank with Malcolm X Academy (the elementary school that is adjacent to the site) students ages 6-11. Shirl has engaged students in the revitalization process by linking the students’ work to the planning being undertaken for the neighboring Youth Park and future Phase I Park. Volunteers from the SF Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects have assisted with in-class teaching and professional mentorship at Malcolm X.

In addition to the programming at Malcolm X, Hunters View Associates and the Mayor’s Office of Housing have partnered with UC Berkeley’s Center for Cities and Schools to implement the Y-PLAN tool (Youth-Plan, Learn, Act, Now) for high school students at Hunters View. Several HOPE SF Youth Leaders were hired in 2010 to engage in the design and program planning for the Phase I Park and adjacent community space.
