Family, Youth and Childcare Center

Inspiring Youth and Children

At the JANICE MIRIKITANI FAMILY, YOUTH AND CHILDCARE CENTER (FYCC), children will get help with their literacy needs, learn how to garden and cook a nutritious dish, and feel comfortable communicating between their native language and English. We are a child’s second home and extended family, we meet their needs at their pace and help them realize their individual strengths and abilities. In a safe, nurturing, and loving space, YOUTH AND CHILDREN learn, grow and develop a greater sense of community.

• Homework Help and Tutoring

Our caring staff strongly emphasizes arts, multiculturalism, civic engagement, community among families, and celebration in our curriculum.

Advancing Families

Through FAMILY SUPPORTIVE SERVICES, we help families move themselves out of poverty one day at a time. From supporting a young boy with his literacy needs to supporting a mother who is struggling with addiction, the Janice Mirikitani Family, Youth and Childcare Center (FYCC) meets families where they are. FYCC is a safe and welcoming environment for children and families that provides a holistic set of resources to help people realize their potential at home, in school, and as leaders in their community. We believe parents are our partners and we engage the whole family in their children’s growth and development.

We strive to build a community by providing opportunities for families to get together in a social setting to connect and learn with each other. Our teachers keep parents up to date on their children’s progress and behavior and strive to maintain consistency in the learning environments between home, school, and FYCC. The accessibility of our free or low-cost child care among low-income families allows parents not only to have access to high quality childcare, but also to maintain employment and financial sustainability and work towards improving their own health and well-being.

#SundayFunday #Community #TenderloinSF #flashbackfriday to the #SummerOfLove! Long before our Real Talk blog, there was Venture, GLIDE's print publication in the 1960s. The entire August issue in 1967 focused on the Black People’s Free Store. Check the profile link to read more!

"What is a free store? Its first principle is to give whatever can be obtained to those who will take. This means clothing, furniture, appliances, food. In a ghetto area where physical and emotional needs are critical, where American Opportunity is an outworn joke, where the ravages of racism are as real as the pavement, a free store means revolution." #FromTheArchives #ThisMonthInHistory #UnconditionalLove #GLIDEHistory #SFhistory #vintagephoto #throwbackthursday to #ColdWar-era GLIDE. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day. 
#GLIDEforDisarmament #FromTheArchives #GLIDEHistory #disarmament #vintagephoto Today marks 72 years after the horrific bombing of #Nagasaki, Japan at the end of WWII. GLIDE remembers the thousands of innocent people who tragically perished in the initial atomic blast as well as the many more thousands who suffered the physical and psychological symptoms of radiation exposure for the rest of their lives: the mothers who lost their babies, the communities ravaged by increased rates of cancer, the elderly survivors who have developed new forms of leukemia and face great pain in their old age. .

We remember them. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day.
