San Francisco (California) — Mayor London N. Breed and nonprofit leaders announced today that the 701 Alabama Consortium, which includes Jamestown Community Center, Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA), and Mission Neighborhood Centers, Inc. (MNC), as well as Mission Language and Vocational School (MLVS), has completed the purchase of a portion of the historic Centro Social Obrero building. MLVS has been housed at the Centro Social Obrero, 2929 19th Street, for over 40 years. The purchase of the building’s 12,902 square foot property would safeguard and enhance culturally appropriate programs for low-income Latino and immigrant residents, such as career counseling, language and vocational training, and work placement.
“The Centro Social Obrero will be able to continue offering a place for people to flourish and develop thanks to the hard work and organization of long-time nonprofit organizations in the Mission and our Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative,” Mayor Breed said. “The purchase of this property illustrates what can be done when we all work together. Without community resources like the Mission Language and Vocational School, our city will be a different place, and now these organizations will be able to deliver even more programs and resources to San Franciscans.”

Mission language and vocational school online
If you or someone you care for never finished high school, you can get a GED or a high school diploma. We’re here to assist you. It’s completely free. Our students range in age from 18 to 88 years old. Our programs are highly adaptable and customized to the individual needs of each student, with technology and in-person check-ins with teachers available. Many of our Adult sites only require students to visit once a week for one hour, and the rest of the week they can complete their education at home.
Our mission at Five Keys is to rebuild communities through education. Our philosophy is that by concentrating on five main areas: education, jobs, recovery, family, and community, we will provide historically underserved communities with opportunities to restart their education using social and restorative justice concepts.
