Afterschool at the JCCSF (formerly HYC)

Grades K – 5

Welcome to the JCCSF's Afterschool Program, where talented and nurturing teachers provide a safe environment for children in grades K – 5 to explore new interests as they build self-esteem. Share in their adventure as they enjoy thematic programming, arts enrichment activities, special interest classes and celebrations of Jewish holidays and culture.

Join our community of Afterschool parents and watch as your child learns valuable social skills and make new friends of their own. Families of all cultures and backgrounds are welcome!


Why Families Love Afterschool at the JCCSF:


Self-expression and creative thinking through fun activities like visual arts, science, movement and crafts.

Intentional Playtime

Intentional but unstructured free time in stimulating environments, from our Aquatics Center to the JCCSF rooftop playground and greenhouse.

Community Building

Coming together not only as a classroom, but also as members of the Afterschool Program family and as part of the larger JCCSF community.


Academic Success
Daily homework assistance in a supportive classroom environment.

Afterschool at the JCCSF is a great option for children with three or more open days after school. As an added bonus, students enrolled in our Afterschool Program receive discounts on most JCCSF recreation classes, and there are special discounts for parents as well. Transportation is available from many SFUSD schools, and nutritious, vegetarian snacks are provided. Additionally, we offer full-day programming on some SFUSD school holidays.
