Welcome to the Hayward Unified School District’s Youth Enrichment Program (YEP). This program is sponsored by the After School Education and Safety (ASES), the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC), and 21st Century High School After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens Programs (ASSETs). We are very excited to have your child as a part of the program this school year. It is our hope that this will be a very positive and enjoyable experience for you and your child.

The Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) is a collaborative effort between the Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) and The City of Hayward. The Hayward Public Agency Liaison Committee originated the initial concept for the program in January 1996. There are 29 sites serving elementary, middle and high school students in the district. Last school year the programs served over 4,000 students from K thru 12th grade. The students participated in: educational, literacy, enrichment and recreational programs.

21st Century Community Learning Centers

Hayward Unified School District hereby formally notifies the local community of its intention to apply to the California Department of Education for the 21st Century After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETS) Program grants for all HUSD high schools. Our application is due to the California Department of Education by December 2016. We also take this opportunity to inform private schools, faith based organizations, and community based organizations serving Hayward young people and families of our intent to provide safe, accessible academic, enrichment, and family literacy programs in the aforementioned schools. Parties interested in participating in our proposal are asked to contact Christy Gerren, Student and Parent Support Programs Director at or 510 723-3857 ext. 34190.
