ExCEL After School Learning Program (Expanded Collaboratives for Excellence in Learning)

The ExCEL After School Programs mission is to create and sustain “safe havens” at public schools where students and community members can access expanded learning opportunities and integrated education, health, social service, and cultural programs in the out-of-school hours.

The Mission YMCA and the San Francisco Unified School District collaborate to offer structured time after school for children attending Monroe Elementary to receive a range of services that includes tutorial help, enrichment activities and recreation. Students must be recommended for the program by their teachers. The program fees are based on income.

The Excel program has 5 goals:
  • Improve literacy and math skills among African Americans, Latinos and English Language Learner students at risk of academic failure
  • Reduce isolation and improve coordination of program/services
  • Expand after school, weekend and summer enrichment opportunities for youth at risk of gang involvement and substance abuse
  • Expand access to and utilization of technology and telecommunications among youth and adults
  • Expand access to parenting education that supports positive youth and adult development
