Bayview YMCA

The Bayview YMCA strengthens the foundations of community by promoting: Youth Development; Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We have been offering life-changing programs to the children, youth and families of the Bayview Hunters Point community since 1996. The Bayview Y hosts a comprehensive range of programs and services needed to support residents challenged by poverty, mental health issues, substance abuse, health inequity and the trauma of community gang violence. We strive to help youth develop positive directions in life by creating programs that increase educational achievements, build leadership skills, provide civic engagement opportunities, and promote health and wellness- all in the context of a safe environment that promotes the core values of the YMCA: Caring, Honesty, Responsibility, and Respect.

The Bayview Y is located in a community where health inequity is prevalent and resources are limited. Our goal is ensure that all people have access to programs and activities that can improve their health outcomes. Yoga plays an important role in the overall health and wellness program at the Bayview Hunters Point YMCA. It provides an opportunity for those that would not normally be exposed to yoga to learn about its benefits and include yoga as a part of their plan to get healthy.
