If variety is the “spice of life,” then you will relish
the Community Youth Center.  From the young boxer or wrestler to the aspiring dancer, gymnast or cheerleader to the martial arts enthusiast, there is something for everybody at the CYC.  If you’re a nature lover and treasure the great outdoors, or you enjoy reading, writing or exploring the academic world, the CYC has it all.

The CYC offers 10 recreational programs including
boxing, wrestling, judo, taekwondo, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, dance, cheerleading and sport specific conditioning.  It also offers an outdoor activities program where students can take excursions to various points of interest throughout the Bay Area and Northern California
to learn more about the environment and what they can do to preserve it.  All of these programs are augmented with the Academic Excellence Center where students can
do homework on their own, or get help from tutors.

The best thing is you don’t have to settle for only one program.  The CYC model offers and encourages kids to participate in several different programs.   Schedules are flexible and variety helps prevent staleness or burnout within a single program.  Youth should be encouraged to participate in multiple activities to diversely develop their motor skills. Participating in multiple enriching activities
at a young age helps set foundations for healthy lifestyles going forward.

Thus, the CYC promotes variety – yet, structure, discipline and order in a young person’s life.  The ultimate goal of the CYC is to teach youth basic core values for developing inner strength and self confidence to become good people with high character.
