BEACON Program

The Willie Brown Beacon Center, a program of the Bayview YMCA, provides wrap around support for students and families with school day and out of school programming that gives youth the tools to thrive, while also strengthening parents, family and community.

We focus on academics, and health and social services. Youth are at the center of our mission, and family is a key component to student success. We engage parents and caregivers as thinking partners and supporters. We support school-wide events, family dinners, academic enrichment, and sports clubs.

All Beacon programs and services are free.
