Our

Program

Genesis Youth Foundation and COVID-19

We promote a healthy lifestyle and positive decision-making through education, physical and mental health. Because group gatherings are not permitted right due to health precautions for COVID-19, GYF is not able to provide programming in the same way we normally do. During this time of social distancing, Genesis is changing programming to an online format. Scroll down for information about GYF athletics, arts and acdemics that can be done at home.

Social Distancing? Join Us Online!

During this time of social distancing due to COVID-19 health precautions, we would like to extend our online at-home tutoring program to assist under-served refugee and immigrant youth. We are interested in partnering with community and faith-based leaders to offer our Academic Enrichment program for the rest of the 2020 school year. Parents are encouraged to get in touch with us about this program.

Play At Home

We're a team, even if we can't play together right now. While we're not able to meet in person, keep your soccer skills sharp. Each week Uncle Sam will post a new video with soccer drills to practice at home. Parents, record a video of your child practicing the drills and post them to the Genesis Youth Foundation Facebook Page.
