About Razing the Bar

Razing the Bar is a California nonprofit agency in its first year of serving the South Bay Area community. We are committed to building a social ecosystem whereby under resourced transitioned age youth populations, including foster youth, of the community can experience the sort of transition that takes them from being dependents of the state to being their own self-sufficient adults. We believe that creating a space that emphasizes consistency in its case management, healthy choices, safety, and service are the cornerstones that our youth will take with them into the next chapters of their lives.

Razing the Bar’s staff provides competent program modules in the following areas:

  • Case Management
  • Personal Development
  • Professional Development
  • Community Support

The Razing the Bar team believes in its core values:

Never Stop Growing
We encourage our youth to explore their unique qualities as well as the world around them. Having a healthy relationship with oneself, with nature, and with other people is the best way to find fulfillment in life.

Lift As You Climb
We know we didn’t get to where we are all by ourselves. It’s our responsibility to share, nurture, and encourage others to cultivate their potential and achieve their goals.

Family is Forever
Razing the Bar doesn’t sever ties with its former program participants. Everyone is entitled to return to Razing the Bar for their relevant needs – case management, job training, job opportunities/placement assistance, mentoring, and so forth.
