Extended Care

En Español

Please join in the fun and be a part of Dolores Huerta’s YMCA Afterschool Program! Our program is a collaborative effort between Dolores Huerta Elementary School, the Mission YMCA, SFUSD – ExCEL, and San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and Their Families.

Our program promotes youth development by supporting academic needs, engaging youth in recreational activities and providing educational and interactive enrichment. We believe youth deserve a quality program that encourages emotional, social, and academic growth.
