The Bayview Beacon Center, a program of the Bayview YMCA. 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.  In order to participate, just fill out a membership packet!
