CYC has worked in the Richmond District for over three decades providing opportunities for young people to excel in their lives. Our workforce development and community services are tuned to the unique needs of a neighborhood with high poverty and ethnic diversity, but without the density of resources as some other San Francisco communities.
A New Home
The new CYC Richmond Community Hub will expand education and employment opportunities to young people, low-income adults, and older adults in the Richmond district. The Hub will provide culturally and linguistically appropriate connection services through a mix of outreach, workshops, individual service coordination and community events. Like all CYC programs, this Hub will support cultural pride and a family-centered approach.
