After School Programs

Thanks to after school programs, young people can transition from the structure of a regulated school day into a fun, engaging environment that also promotes studying, socializing, self-expression, and personal growth.

For Francisco Middle School Students

Each afternoon kicks off with a community gathering followed by homework/academic time. Then kids break into groups depending on what kind of recreation or enrichment club they’ve chosen. For example, they can choose to play sports, take up cooking, fix/repair bikes, make a video, or skateboard. The possibilities go on and on!

This Beacon After School Program is offered every school day afternoon, from 3:26 pm–6:26 pm. There is no cost to attend. Space is limited, but any child attending Francisco Middle School may apply. For more details and information on how to apply, please visit the North Beach-Chinatown Beacon Center Web site or contact Ed Cheveres, NBC Beacon Center Program Manager at or Erika Castro, Assistant Program Manager at or you can call them at 415.398.5015.


For Galileo High School Students
