San Francisco, CA
In 2001 Chinatown CDC’s Youth team conducted oral history interviews and academic research to develop a more comprehensive perspective on Chinatown’s history. From this research the youth developed CATs—designing a tour route, script, and training manual—and began to offer guided tours through Chinatown’s many alleyways. The tours include a history of Chinatown and offer alternative perspectives of the neighborhood you might not get on regular tours. The youth lead tours for schools, individuals, families, tourists, and non-profit organizations. For more information and to schedule a tour, please visit Chinatown Alleyway Tours.
