Program Overview

Youth Enrichment Programs operates three Out of School Time (OST) High School Programs and five Middle School Programs within the City of Hayward. These programs offer more expansive opportunities for students in grade 7th-12th to enhance their 21st Century skills, explore post-secondary educational opportunities and broaden their life experiences. Along with academic support (which includes credit recovery and concurrent enrollment), these programs provide a vast range of enrichment activities from fitness workshops to cooking classes coupled with job training, volunteer placement and post-secondary exploration. Allowing a secure environment for students to explore their interests, these high school and middle school programs seek to increase students attendance, graduation rates, boost academic performance, and provide occasions to develop new skills. Please see below for new and upcoming programs!
