Better Because of You

At the Y, we believe all children deserve the chance to reach their fullest potential. That’s why all students in our after-school programs and Youth Chance High School are supported by quality role models and teachers. They are cared for, fed only healthy food, and given countless enrichment opportunities. The Embarcadero YMCA cares for more than 600 students each year, providing a safe place where children are able to learn, grow, and thrive.

Every year, our neighbors work together to raise funds that keep Y programs and initiatives going. Volunteers are the heart of our Y, and without their support, we wouldn't be able to serve as many, as wholly as we do today. 

You can join our cause by volunteering today. Annual Campaign fundraisers gain valuable experience, learn in a supportive fun environment, and give back to an important cause.
