CYC serves the city through our main office in Tenderloin—a neighborhood known for its economic challenges. Our largest programs, computer clubhouse, and weekly food pantry are all run from this office. In Tenderloin, we also facilitate our afterschool program at Redding Elementary and participate in neighborhood street festivals.

Programs in Tenderloin:

aapi violence prevention

This program partners with multiple agencies citywide that work together to promote a substance abuse program. The program teaches youth about leading a healthy lifestyle, making sound choices, and avoiding the pitfalls and dangers of drug, alcohol, and nicotine abuse.

computer clubhouse

The CYC Computer Clubhouse provides a safe, out-of-school learning environment for youth to explore their creativity using technology. The Computer Clubhouse has the latest hardware and software for youth to acquire technological skills for personal, academic, and professional development.

newcomer club

Newcomer Club provides support to youths who are adapting to a new life in the United States as immigrants and as Americans. This program equips youth with the life skills and knowledge to adapt academically and socially with their peers going through the same journey.

redding elementary

CYC’s elementary after school program is designed to incorporate enrichment, educational, health, and wellness activities to supplement traditional classroom learning. Specialized clubs, sports, nutrition, and tutoring help expand students’ social and emotional development.


TOPS provides a vital set of wraparound services that connect newly immigrated and monolingual, high-risk AAPI Transitional Aged Youth (age 17-24) with caring adults and peers to help them successfully transition into adulthood.


Young Asian Women Against Violence (YAWAV) is a 9-month program where youth learn about the root causes and impact of violence, and cultivate their leadership skills and voice.
