“In San Francisco, 826 Valencia expanded by opening a second writing center in the Tenderloin neighborhood at the corner of Golden Gate and Leavenworth. What was once a rundown corner store in the densely populated, low-income Tenderloin district—a magnet for drug trafficking and street crime—has become a place where young students gather on field trips with their classroom teachers or after school to ignite their imaginations.”
Thanks so much to everyone on the Gensler’s Team who dedicated their time, and vision, to transform our Tenderloin Center into a beautiful space that foster students’ creativity. Read more about their experience on their website.
