We Have a New Website!


We are so excited to unveil our brand new website! We owe a lot of thanks to Decision Counsel for donating their time and expertise to this project. We couldn’t be happier. Our website is now sleek, modern and very user-friendly!

One of our favorite things is that you can access a library of Street Soldiers Radio podcasts directly through the website…

You’re Invited to Kwanzaa


We are getting excited to celebrate Kwanzaa with our family and friends December 29th.  You are invited to join us for a night of celebration!

This year’s theme is “Adversity: bringing it back to the roots.” With everything going on in this world, we are faced with much adversity.  We need to remind ourselves where we come from, what we’ve been through, and where we will be going.  Help us spread this message through love, family and community.

#GivingTuesday All Month Long


Thank you very much for our early supporters who helped us raise almost $10,000 in our first week of giving! Our goal is to raise $40,000 for the Alive & Free Scholarship Fund in the month of December, and Google.org is providing matching funds for the first $10,000.

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say THANK YOU for your continued support and belief in our youth!

Thank you to our Donors!

Alumni Spotlight


“Omega was more than a program for me, it was a family. I was able to reach out during the tough times.  I now had a support system, someone who reached out and checked on me,” said Mahogany Spears.

She completed the Alive & Free Leadership Academy in 2003 and graduated from St. Augustine College in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2007 with her B.A. in Political Science.  She didn’t stop there.  She continued on to USF and earned her Master’s in Counseling Psychology.

“The Coachism that stuck with me was ‘You’re only one bad decision away’.  It kept me on the right track.”

She is now the Deputy Director of Violence Prevention in the Mayor’s Office for the City & County of San Francisco.  “I just put in for the job not knowing what was going to happen. Then they called me for a phone interview.  Then they called me for an in-person interview. And then they called me back to tell me I had the job.  I couldn’t believe it!

I feel like a torch was passed down.  I am responsible for giving back to my community the way they gave to me.  I want to help my community.

I want you to know that I owe a part of my success to my participation in Alive & Free.”
