Circus Center Youth Outreach Programs
Thank you for your gift to Circus Center's Youth Outreach Program!

Under the mentorship of Circus Center's expert instructors, children at all of our outreach sites explore and build skills in a variety of circus arts, including acrobatics, juggling, equilibristics, clowning, aerial arts, and more.

Our program currently includes:

1. Weekly progressive circus instruction as part of the after-school program run by our organizational partners, Up On Top. This program exclusively serves low-income youth (K-5) in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood.

2. Weekly adaptive circus instruction at Open Mind School, which serves children with autism and other cognitive impairments and learning differences.

3. We are currently finalizing plans to offer twice weekly progressive circus instruction as part of an after-school program run by the SF YMCA.

Thanks to the generosity of our community, our outreach programs are fully funded through the end of the 2018-19 school year, and we are now raising funds to keep our current sites in 2019-20 and add new ones. Your donation will help Circus Center pay our expert instructors, cover transportation costs, and purchase dedicated equipment for these services.

Thank you for helping us reach more underserved children in San Francisco with the many benefits of circus arts, including non-competitive active fun, artistic expression, social and emotional learning, even enhanced cognitive function and more.
