The Bayview Beacon Center, a program of the Bayview YMCA, is located at the best high school in San Francisco, Phillip & Sala Burton High! Together, we are implementing the community schools model to ensure that every student graduates college ready. The Beacon gives youth the tools to thrive, while also strengthening the legs that support them: parents, family and community. All Beacon programs and services are free and are open to everyone — especially students, parents and residents of Bayview Hunters Point, the Portola District and Visitacion Valley.
Youth programs take place Monday-Friday during Puma Block (2:30pm-6pm). They include the Teen Center, homework help, dance, art, music, leadership, sports, wellness workshops/case management and employment trainings. For adults and parents, the Bayview Beacon provides classes, support and fun! Check out the Computer Basics, yoga and GED classes that take place after 6pm and on Saturday mornings.
