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 3:25 pm–6:00 pm. Any child attending Francisco Middle School may apply and the cost is based on a sliding scale. For more details and information on how to apply, please contact Lorraine Orlandi, NBC Beacon Director at or at 415.956.1234 or Jimmy Le, Program Manager at 415.535.5597 or
