Youth Programs

We believe that when our youth have can learn in a safe environment, they will uplift their families and community.

After School Program (Monday to Wednesday afternoons)

Does your child need homework help after school? Does he or she have a place to go to after school if you do not have anyone available to watch them during the afternoon? Come enroll your child in the APACC After School Program! APACC After School Program is an equal-opportunity FREE program open to any youth who live in Visitacion Valley! Spots in the program are first-come, first-serve!

In addition to regular homework assistance and recreation programming, we also provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities on Tuesdays in collaboration with the San Francisco’s Department of Children, Youth & Their Families (DCYF) and Techbridge. Each Tuesday, we will introduce our youth to science and engineering concepts through hands-on projects and career activities.

Our academic mentors are all college-educated, and many of them were raised in Visitacion Valley. We understand the importance of breaking the cycle of poverty, and there is no better way than when our children can go to college. We partner with San Francisco State University to bring college students to teach and tutor our children.

When: Monday to Wednesday, 2 – 6 PM

Grades Accepted: 3rd grade to 8th grade

Parent Testimony:

“Without the after-school program, my child would become addicted to video games and would not be motivated to study. They will also get a low grade in English reading and math. At last, I think Asian Pacific American Community Center is very helpful to my child.” – Yun, Long Fang

“The program is very important to me and my son because they have helped a lot with my son’s homework. I have benefited in that most of the time, I do not have the knowledge to help with my son’s homework and I really like that they have free time to do physical activities which is very important for their development.” – Leonor Hernandez
