Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Spring 2019 Summertime is almost here, and with that brings the pitter patter of hundreds of children each week running and laughing through JCYC’s Pine Street Gym! Planning is well underway for the annual Tomodachi Summer and Teen Program, JCYC’s oldest running program, which is a nine-week recreational program for elementary school aged children. Each week is full of fun activities, trips exploring both neighborhood locales and destinations outside of San Francisco, Japanese cultural enrichment and “Club Days” which expose children to workshops, and activities around themes such as STEM, Visual/Performing Arts, Sports and Culinary Arts. “Art and Cooking Club Days were my favorite!”, says six year old Tomodachi participant, Jordann. Each Tomodachi group is supervised by trained high school aged Counselors and a college aged Team Leader. Many of our Summer staff were once program participants themselves and want to give back to the program that meant so much to them. The Harper Family shared thoughts from their daughter, “…She loves her counselors and wants to be one when she’s older.” Another facet of the Tomodachi program is our Tomodachi Teen Group for youth entering 7th-9th grade. This specialized program is designed for our middle school aged youth and gives them time to socialize with their peers, but also gives them an introduction to develop leadership skills and the opportunity to practice those skills by assisting the Tomodachi groups twice a week. A Teen Group week consists of personal growth workshops in the areas of college readiness, team building, healthy behaviors and life skills, field trips both in and outside of San Francisco, and a three day camping trip, in addition to the Assistant Counselor training and practice. The Tomodachi Summer Program will run from Monday, June 10th through Friday, August 9th. At this time, the Tomodachi Summer Program has a waitlist and the Teen Group Program has limited availability. Please contact the Youth Development office at (415) 563-8052 for more information. To download a complete version of JCYC Up Close Spring 2019, click here.
