Welcome to Urban Services!
Welcome to the Urban Services YMCA!
The Urban Services YMCA has deep roots in the East and West Oakland communities. It was formed in 2004 by organizing three inner-city YMCAs-Eastlake, M. Robinson Baker and the YMCA Teen Center--under a single umbrella.
Now with two main facilities, M. Robinson Baker & Eastlake, Urban Services YMCA exists to serve the youth and families of Oakland’s most urban and impoverished schools and communities. Urban Services YMCA provides programs and services to educate, engage, and empower people of all ages in order to nurture the potential of every child, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and provide support to our schools and communities.
We achieve this using the YMCA’s three areas of focus: youth development and education, healthy living, and social responsibility.
