About Renaissance Parents of Success
Renaissance Parents of Success (RPOS) has been working in the San Francisco community for over 35 years. Evolving from a smaller organization focused on GED preparation and the special educational needs of young mothers, programs have positively expanded. Education and training are key to the door of opportunity, and RPOS serves as a bridge for those who lack education, economic self-sufficiency, self-awareness & direction. RPOS takes a holistic approach to assure no participant falls between the cracks. The whole person must be healed because the mind, spirit and body are interconnected.
Participants receive the tools to advance academically & vocationally, as well as to develop greater self-esteem and healthier lifestyles. Customized plans are developed & implemented focused on strengthening participants, families, and the community overall.

Core Program Components
Core Academic & Mentoring Support focused on: Highschool & GED completion/Career Planning & Vocational Development/Paid Internships. Technology Training with a focus on coding is also provided. Integrated in the program are field trips to major companies and medical facilities so that youths and young adults can talk to employees and observe appropriate workplace demeanor.
Pre-Job Readiness Actions Plans focused on: Creating professional resumes/ Successful interview methods/Follow-up techniques such as thank you letters. RPOS Program Employment Specialists also invite potential employers to workshops, where they provide participants with information on their company’s hiring policies, job qualifications, and work expectations.
Saving and managing finances is key and many program participants have not been shown how to effectively do this. It is our desire to change this culture by working with participants to open checking and savings accounts. When youths and young adults are able to build material assets, they are more likely to achieve positive outcomes such as higher expectations; confidence about the future; and long-term thinking & planning.
Wraparound services encompass needed support in areas such as life skills and barrier removal services. Not only are participants provided with key developmental support, but also with services focused on reducing violent incidents and negative contacts with law enforcement, which generally results in the continued deterioration of the family. Support as needed is also provided to youths and young adults in positively going through the court system & the Clean Slate Program. RPOS involves the entire family & family activities are also an integral part of the program.
