Youth Club at St. Francis of Assisi

Serving the East Palo Alto community for over 10 years, the Catholic Charities Youth Club at St. Francis of Assisi helps youth grow into responsible adults by providing athletic and educational activities that foster character development, academic achievement, physical fitness, and community and environmental stewardship.

Our vision is for youth in our community to have a safe, supportive environment that will build their successes today, enhance their skills and experiences, grow their aspirations for tomorrow, and nurture a bright future filled with promise and achievement.

The guiding pillars of our program are:

  • Education — a commitment to academic success
  • Community — building relationships that support families
  • Respect and Accountability — instilling self-respect, accountability, compassion, love, and empathy
  • Determination — inspiring resilience, patience, and achievement
  • Creativity — fostering genuine curiosity and innovative problem solving

Our motto, “Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders”, is embodied by our goal to lead by example. We hope that each participant will carry the pillars of our program far beyond the walls of our classrooms.

We provide education for over 100 local 2nd - 5th grader youth year.
