As of July 1st, 2018, the Jamestown Community Center and Loco Bloco have formally merged. Both youth development organizations have long established track records of providing enriching, high quality programming to youth to promote their healthy transition into adulthood. They chose to merge because of their shared commitment to youth development, shared love for the Mission community, and shared experience in developing leadership among low income youth and families.

Jamestown is a Mission District based organization serving low income youth and their families with free and affordable high quality programming and supports since 1971. We offer tutoring, academic enrichment, social/emotional support, sports, youth workforce, family support services, artivism and Afro-Latino arts education and performance.
We're incredibly proud of Loco Bloco for taking the First Place Overall Prize at Carnaval SF 2018. The 275 person contingent consisted of drummers, dancers, stilt walkers as well as family and community members. If you missed the parade enjoy the recap video.
