Our child care and youth development programs give parents the peace of mind that comes from knowing your children are in a fun and safe environment where they will learn, explore and grow. From before school care to afterschool help with homework and in summer camp, thousands of families trust the YMCA.
Currently, we have elementary Y-Kids programs at Castro Valley and Marshall Elementary, as well as a Y-Zone program at Creekside Middle School.
Every teen deserves a good start on the road to being an adult. Our Teen Enrichment programs offer a safe, supportive alternative to the harsh streets. We provide a stable environment, where teens can develop their social, emotional, intellectual and moral skills. Teens involved in YMCA programs are more likely to earn better grades and stay in school.
Currently, we are running a Youth & Government program throughout the Eden Area.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
A healthy body is just as important as a healthy mind and spirit. Our Health and Wellness programs help individuals and families achieve all three. The Eden Area Y has partnered with Hayward Unified School District to offer after-school fitness programs in all of their middle and high schools. These classes include zumba, hip hop, and polynesian dance, as well as kickboxing, teen boot camp, self defense, and more!
In addition to this, we are running our "Below the Rim" basketball league for kids ages 5-7 in our gym right here at the Y.
