Annual Reports


Positivity • Youthfulness
 Community • Inclusiveness • Hope

At CYC, our vision is clear: to foster a next generation of self-determined, economically empowered young people, each with a strong sense of identity, agency, and possibility.

Leadership is essential in achieving this vision. However, we believe leadership goes beyond simply guiding from the front—it means actively listening to, celebrating, and amplifying the voices that can shape our collective future. For our youth, leadership isn’t something we teach, but rather, a potential we nurture. We create an environment for them to recognize and embrace their unique gifts, talents, and experiences. Their views make our vision stronger, and their agency makes our agency stronger as well.

We appreciate your continued support for our invaluable work. We hope the stories in this report resonate deeply, showcasing the promise and potential of the youth and families we’re privileged to serve.


Sarah Ching-Ting Wan
Executive Director

San Francisco is our home and community, but as we’ve grown over the past 53 years, CYC has received important national and international recognition and built strong partners who believe in and resonate with our work.

CYC has been a uniquely valued and steadfast supporter of local victims of violence directed at the AAPI community. Since 2020, CYC has supported 184 victims with a wide variety of services. Via the Victim and Survivors Fund, CYC has distributed over $34K in direct support to date.

This year, with great excitement, we opened the CYC Excelsior Community Service Center to address the important needs of this community with culturally attuned services and support.
