Mission Statement & Philosophy
The mission of the YEP is to use the resources, energy and talents of the entire Hayward community to provide enrichment activities for our youth and to create a safe environment for children to interact and learn.
Serving students is at the heart of the YEP mission and philosophy. As resources allow, the YEP will serve as many students as possible. The YEP continually strives to improve services for all our children through staff training, program development and the implementation of proven teaching materials and methods. The program is evaluated each year to ensure we meet our goals and objectives. Our programs are doing well when all participants realize academic success, social growth, and personal satisfaction in an environment that is safe, secure, and supportive.
