COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information and Updates

COVID-19 is having a deep impact on our community and the youth and families we serve. We hope that in these uncertain times that you are finding ways to stay healthy and safe.

As with the rest of the world, CYC needed to pivot as an organization due to shelter-in-place to continue our work and impact on the community that we serve. This page serves as both a bulletin board about how CYC is responding and adapting to COVID-19 and a showcase of the inspiring work of our staff and youth. We hope it provides a smile and a reminder of our shared vitality. We will emerge from this crisis transformed, and we will emerge from it together.

As an organization with deep ties to the local API community, CYC remains very concerned about the potential rise of xenophobia and racism in response to this global virus and global health threat. We are working closely with other local API organizations, local government, and Asian-owned businesses in our community to provide needed attention and support for financial hardship, prejudice, and food insecurity.

CYC Program Status:

  • All CYC programs taking place at schools and CYC offices are currently suspended during shelter-in-place.
  • Many CYC programs have adopted a distance learning model using virtual classrooms to facilitate remote workshops and projects while adhering to strict communication guidelines to protect the information of our youth and clients.
  • All school-based programs are working closely with San Francisco Unified School District to align with their distance learning program and provide supplemental learning.
  • CYC has put a priority on the wellness of our youth and clients during this pandemic with one-on-one check ins to give them access to the resources they need.
  • CYC power wash teams continue working throughout the city to keep our streets hygienic and safe. All power wash teams are complying with the city’s strict safety guidelines during the COVID-19 outbreak.
