Closing Achievement Gaps for African American Young Men in San Francisco

Closing Achievement Gaps for African American Young Men in San Francisco

San Francisco Achievers Voted as The Myers-Briggs Company's 2022 Charity Partner

PR Newswire

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- African American students' graduation rates hover 20 percentage points below their white counterparts. San Francisco Achievers is addressing that inequality for African American young men by providing scholarships and other support. And their work has gained them support from many Bay Area residents, foundations and companies, now including The Myers-Briggs Company.

The San Francisco Achievers supports African American male students and graduates of San Francisco Unified School District schools to lead and thrive in higher education and beyond. They focus on closing the opportunity gap through college scholarships, leadership training, mentoring and more.

"We're thrilled to start working with San Francisco Achievers to make a direct, positive impact in the Black community locally through this partnership," said Jeff Hayes, President and CEO of The Myers-Briggs Company. "As a Certified B Corp, we're dedicated to the triple bottom line and this partnership is just one of the many ways we're making good on that B Corp® promise."

In addition to providing access to The Myers-Briggs Company's personality assessments for professional development, leadership development and improving self-awareness, the partnership will also support San Francisco Achievers through career development, mentoring, web, marketing, and fundraising support.

"To date, SFA has awarded 244 scholarships, matched 217 students with mentors, and 74% of our scholars engaged with our program are still enrolled," says Gregg Zaire, Executive Director at San Francisco Achievers. "We're looking forward to working with The Myers-Briggs Company to expand our reach and results for these young men."
