Presidio YMCA has been serving youth at Marina Middle School (MMS) for over fifteen years. As a brand new Beacon Community School site, Marina presents a unique opportunity for committed, passionate, and creative educators and youth developers to fully manifest their talents to engage and serve youth and their families. With an extended school day and year, MMS is designed to optimize the learning time of students by providing more preparation and instruction time for teachers. In Fall 2018, we enthusiastically welcomed our pioneering cohort of youth, families, and partners.
