CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTH

Through your support, the YMCA provides children and their families with:

Social-emotional development during the most formative early years of life.

Academic supports at each stage of learning that ensure every child can be successful in school and life.

Outdoor and enrichment opportunities that build healthy habits and a meaningful connection to nature.

Skill-building and guidance for teens that open pathways to successful careers and foster community engagement.

BUILDING CAREER PATHWAYS

82% of participants report that as a result of their YMCA Workforce Development Program, they understand the steps to get a job after finishing their education.

Our Workforce Development Programs are just one example of the many ways the Y creates opportunities for youth to find future success.

Where there is a need, the Y sees potential

Program Highlight

YMCA AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS

"The Y’s afterschool program has had such a positive impact on our family during these difficult times."

Parents and caregivers are working more than ever to pay their rent, put food on the table and provide support to their families.

"Being able to drop my daughter off at the Y each day has allowed me to focus on my work during the day and not work in the late evenings and early mornings to make up for the lost days anymore."

YMCA afterschool programs create opportunities for students to recover missed and lost learning, close achievement gaps and explore topics they may not encounter during the school day.

"My daughter has been thriving by having a routine schedule where she goes to school each day and spends time with students in a classroom setting. She has also loved the extracurricular art and outdoor play activities. The Y teachers engage the kids and support them to get their homework done!"

- Hidden Valley Afterschool Program Parent

The Y’s afterschool programs across Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties provide a healthy meal, a place to be active and play, and the opportunity to develop relationships with other kids and adults.
