The Embarcadero Y is more than just a gym. We are a cause-driven organization creating a brighter future. You can make a difference in your community by donating to the YMCA Annual Campaign. When you give to the Y, your gift helps young people achieve their potential. It also empowers people of all ages to lead healthier lives and strengthens the bonds of community.
At the Y, we believe no child should be turned away due to the cost of programming. This is why we offer extensive Financial Assistance to all families in need. Our Annual Campaign supports this Financial Assistance program and ensures every child has the opportunity to blossom.
The Embarcadero YMCA is committed to strengthening the foundations of our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our programs for youth, families and adults are all focused on making an everyday impact in the lives of those who comes through our doors.
Youth Chance High School
Everyday we are helping teens in our community take one step closer to a bright future. Youth Chance High School is a place for teens from all over the Bay Area to focus on education and earn their High School diploma in a safe, supportive environment.
After School Programs
Each day hundreds of youth and their families are supported by the Y through after school programming. The Y provides a safe place for children where they can learn, make friends and build confidence. Providing parents with the peace of mind that their children are safe and engaged throughout the workday.
Youth & Government
The hands on approach of our Youth & Government program provides positive opportunities and experiences for youth while teaching them the complexities of our state and local government. Participants strengthen their communities by becoming active and responsible contributors who are inspired to lead, and are empowered to create meaningful change.
We believe no one should be turned away due to cost, which is why we provide Financial Assistance for anyone in need. Financial Assistance is given for membership and programming, helping to ensure our community is happy, healthy and moving in the right direction.
