Newport Beach & Costa Mesa
Our before and after school care provides opportunities for your child to learn, grow, and thrive as they make their way from kindergarten through 8th grade. We provide daily physical and educational activities like sports and recreation, homework support, club curriculum, and technology that allow students to engage in the learning process and have fun with friends at the same time!
Site Lead Aleisa Lugo
I have been working for the YMCA for 3 years now after graduating with a BA from the University of California, Irvine. Davis YMCA is special to me because this has been my home site since I’ve started as a teacher’s assistant. In these past years I have learned how much the Y can be such a positive influence for children and their families. The most rewarding part is to see children grow and develop during their time at the Y. I love getting to know the children and spending time with them, as well as seeing them explore and experience new interests here at the Y.
Year Round Programs
Director Gisela Califano
Hi, my name is Gisela Califano. I started working for the YMCA in 2006 as an assistant teacher and continued to learn and grow into the director I am today. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the positive effect that we make on all these children and families. We try our best to make Mariners YMCA fun and exciting for all age groups. Mariners YMCA is more like a family, we all love and care about each other and want to see everyone succeed. My main focus here at the YMCA is to guide children and families to a path that is positive and healthy. A smile really does go a long way.
