SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 5, 2015) - Larkin Street Youth Services and title sponsor, PwC, will host the annual Corporate Leadership Breakfast on February 12, 2015, at the City Club, attended by members of San Francisco's business community. This year's guest speaker, Brian Chesky, CEO & Co-Founder, Airbnb, will have a fireside chat on the shared economy, moderated by PwC US' Jim Henry.

Under Brian's leadership, Airbnb stands at the forefront of the sharing economy, and has expanded to over 800,000 listings in 190 countries. He drives the company's vision, strategy, and growth as it provides interesting and unique ways for people to travel, and changes the lives of its community.

"PwC is a proud supporter of Larkin Street and its extensive programs aimed at helping homeless youth get off the streets and preparing them for productive adult lives through educational programs," said Jim Henry, managing partner for PwC San Francisco. "We are committed to doing our part to help educate young people and contribute to opportunities for them to succeed in San Francisco. The combination of our time, talent, and capital donated to Larkin Street, will impact both these young people and the greater Bay Area community as we focus on developing the leaders and innovators of the next generation."

Larkin Street has served over 75,000 youth since first opening in 1984. The Corporate Leadership Breakfast raises funds and awareness to help support Larkin Street as they deepen and enhance their programs including housing, education, employment, and support services. Larkin Street serves about two-thirds of San Francisco's homeless youth and is the primary provider of housing for transitional age youth in San Francisco. For every young person who exits street life, society saves more than five times the cost of long-term intervention.

The breakfast will be held at the San Francisco City Club, February 12, 2015, 8:00 - 9:30 am. For more details and to receive a press pass, contact Kathleen Stavis, (415) 673-0911 ext. 305 or
