Inspire Youth and Children

2420hours of licensed childcare provided annually

In a safe, nurturing, and loving space, YOUTH AND CHILDREN learn, grow and develop a greater sense of community.

At the JANICE MIRIKITANI FAMILY, YOUTH AND CHILDCARE CENTER (FYCC), children get help with their literacy needs, learn how to cook a nutritious dish, and feel comfortable communicating between their native language and English.

We are a child’s second home and extended family, we meet their needs at their pace and help them realize their individual strengths and abilities.


Youth and Children Services:

  • Licensed Early Childhood Education (18 months to 5 years old)
  • Afterschool Programming (Kindergarten to 5th graders)
  • Homework Help and Tutoring
  • Computer Instruction
  • Literacy
  • Urban gardening, cooking and nutrition 
  • Health and Wellness 
  • Creative and Performing Arts

Our caring staff strongly emphasizes arts, multiculturalism, civic engagement, community among families, and celebration in our curriculum.
