In the fall of 2011 the Tomales Bay Youth Center (TBYC) opened its doors for after-school programs, weekend programs, field trips and outings.

About: As of July 2021, the Tomales Bay Youth Center (TBYC) has been fully integrated with WMCS! We’re excited to develop more robust, integrated, and sustainable Youth Services Program to serve the West Marin community.

The Tomales Bay Youth Center (TBYC) opened its doors for after-school and weekend programs in the fall of 2011. TBYC is a diverse youth-driven program offering a safe, supervised space for West Marin students to gather and engage in positive group activities.

The TBYC operates a recreational center, “The Lounge,” on the West Marin School campus in Point Reyes Station. It was designed with the students’ input and features a variety of game tables, computers, a movie projector, Karaoke machine, a dedicated art space and a kitchen. With the use of the school grounds and the community gymnasium, students can participate in a wide variety of sports, games and community building activities.

The TBYC also plans field trips and outings that include hiking, fishing, sailing, beach bonfires, bowling, trips to San Francisco, sports events, and more.

Roughly 50% of the TBYC participants come from families with yearly incomes below the poverty level, 60% come from families that are partly or exclusively Spanish speaking, and 30% of students live in extremely remote areas. The TBYC is an essential service that helps build community and creates youth leaders.

Waterdogs Swim Classes: Established in the early 1940s, these Red Cross-certified classes are held every summer to ensure our kids are safe to recreate in Tomales Bay.

Childcare Scholarships: We provide scholarship through local non-profit preschools and after schools, and summer programs from Tomales to Stinson Beach.
