Like many other neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, the AAPI community in Excelsior is quite large, comprising 41% of the total population. Many of these AAPI families are low-income, first-generation immigrants who face daily cultural, linguistic, and practical challenges.
The CYC Excelsior Community Service Center provides linguistically and culturally attuned support to this community, including access to translation services, transportation information, technology classes, housing referrals, Medi-Cal assistance, and CalFresh assistance. The center is located at 35 San Juan Avenue, SF, CA 94112 and operates from Monday to Friday, between 10 am and 6 pm.
CYC also offers after school programs in the Mission and Excelsior at Moscone Elementary School and Balboa High School, providing educational and enrichment activities to complement traditional daytime classroom learning. Additionally, CYC youth in these neighborhoods lead classes at local senior centers, teaching seniors how to use technology and how to prepare for disasters.
