Youth are the center of our
community.

Community Youth Center of San Francisco champions the diverse youths in our community – giving them a voice in their futures and pathways to success.

For 50 years, CYC has provided the youth of our city a sense of belonging and vital tools and experiences to succeed in life.

CYC serves over 8,000 youth each year and is one of only a few agencies in San Francisco addressing the needs of a diverse population of low-income, high-need, and at-risk Asian Pacific American, Latino and African American youth.

Our services include academic and college counseling, job placement and employment training, substance abuse and violence prevention education, crisis intervention and mediation, leadership development, and technology and computer training.
