Melissa, Program Leader

I am very excited to be a Program Leader this year. As a native to the Bay Area and former YMCA ASP Student myself, I fell in love with community development at a very early age. Inspired by the benefits of youth counseling, I quickly developed a deep passion for youth development and advocacy. This resolve stuck with me through college, leading me to get my BA in Political Science with a focus on social change from San Francisco State University. I am happy spending this school year collaborating with the youth to help them explore their skills and keep San Francisco an amazing place to live!

My name is Stephen Eguilos and I am a After School Program Leader at Aptos Middle School. I have been working for the Y since 2009 and have been here at Aptos for about 4 years. When I am not at Aptos, you can probably find me at a park playing some hoops or hanging out with my wife and my two sons! One interesting/weird fact about me: I am the only person in the world who can't snap his fingers!

This is my fourth year working at this site and I've enjoyed interacting and creating relationships with the students.  I graduated from SFSU with my BA.  I love arts and crafts as well as teaching others how to cook because food is always a good thing to learn about.  

Nav Dabb, Program Leader

My name is Nav Dabb and I am a Program Leader at Aptos Middle School.  I am currently attending SF State and working towards a marketing and business degree.  I love listening to music and come up with really clever ways of presenting ideas to others.  I'm also a huge music lover and I haven't come across a hip hop beat I haven't liked. Guaranteed.


Dear Aptos Families,


The Aptos YMCA After School Program is a collaborative ExCEL Program offered by Aptos Middle School, the Stonestown Family YMCA, SFUSD, and the S.F. Department of Children, Youth and their Families. Our program provides academic assistance, recreational activities, program enrichment and youth development.


The Aptos YMCA After School staff provides a safe and structured environment for Aptos students to learn and have fun. Students are expected to attend a minimum of 3 days per week and be prepared to work on assignments, engage in enrichment and recreation activities and have fun!


Our daily schedule includes 1 hour of homework help and 1 hour of enrichment classes (activities vary and change every 6-8 weeks). For more information, go to, under "Students" you’ll see “YMCA After School Program”


Please note: This is NOT a homework completion program, nor is this a drop-in program. This is an enrichment program. The Aptos YMCA  After School Program will begin August 15th, 2016. All students are to report to the cafeteria for sign-in immediately after school. The program will run until Friday, May 26th and will be closed during all school holidays, professional development days and breaks. Hours of operations are Monday-Friday from 3:30pm - 6:30pm on regular school days and from 2:30pm-6:30pm on early release days. Pick up time is from 6:00pm to 6:30pm.

Greetings Aptos Family!

Thank you for being involved in the Aptos After-School Program and for your patience as I get to know the school culture. I wanted to communicate what is offered in our program. Our program is split into two components: homework help and enrichments.

Homework help is lead for our After-School Program (ASP) staff and 5 teachers for an hour. This is not a homework completion program so it is highly encouraged you talk to your students about taking advantage of our homework help hour. We try our best to support them in this area.

Enrichments are activities that the ASP staff lead that usually switch up every 6 weeks. This hour involves anything from STEAM research class, Sports, Arts& Crafts or cooking.  

Each student is assigned to a Homework Help tutor room for the whole school year.

I will communicate details of our enrichments and other opportunities as they are finalized.

If you need more information, have questions or concerns, please feel free to communicate to me.

Thank you,

Erich Wieland

Aptos ASP Site Coordinator
