So Much More Than Childcare: Head Start is All About Family
Three years ago, Summer Britt, almost nine months pregnant with her son Sky and a recent
transfer student to UC Berkeley, was on a desperate search for childcare.
The childcare centers she contacted, however, were full and the paperwork to get on their
waitlists seemed endless. A former teacher of Britt’s recommended the YMCA’s Vera Casey
Head Start Center in Berkeley. Located in a picturesque Victorian home, Britt said she felt
as if she were meeting with “a family in their little house.”
The welcoming staff felt like family, Britt says. The teachers gave daily reports about Sky’s
activities and showed Britt videos of her son playing. “I felt so bad because I wasn’t home
with my baby,” Britt said. “But once I got [to Vera Casey] I could relax.”
Finding affordable, high-quality childcare options can be difficult for any parent. For a
single mother with few resources, it’s even harder. The National Institute of Child Health
Development estimated that only 10 percent of childcare settings nationwide provide
high-quality care. In California, the Institute estimated that the childcare costs 40 percent
of a single mother’s income. “It was really stressful to find a place,” Britt said. “You have
a picture in your head of what it’s going to be like but then I’d go to a place and the staff
would be cold or the administration wasn’t responsive.”
At Vera Casey, however, Britt found resources she never dreamed of. Counselors at the
center gave Britt parenting advice. Sky’s teachers became Britt’s closest allies in keeping
tabs on her son’s development. The YMCA’s Head Start Centers provide a range of services
including nutrition education, health exams, social services and leadership opportunities
for parents to make policy and budget decisions. As a parent pursuing her education,
Britt qualified for subsidized full-day care and was able to finish her degree last summer.
Now she works part-time at a job she “loves” and is hoping get full-time work. Ultimately,
she said, “my distrust transformed into unshakeable trust and this faith allowed me to
concentrate on my studies, knowing my son was in good hands.”

So Much More Than a Day Camp: Albany Provides a Rich Experience
Jordan Okulolo, is an outgoing eight-year-old who loves to dance and is learning to swim.
His mother, Onome Okulolo, works full time and says she could keep Jordan, and his little
sister Lauren, at their grandparents’ house in Richmond during the summer. “It would cost
me nothing,” she says. “But I don’t want Jordan watching television all day long.” Yet paying
for an enriching summer camp experience for both kids is beyond what Onome, a single
parent, can afford.
Fortunately, Onome was eligible for financial assistance through the Albany YMCA. “It’s still
a big stretch for me to send my kids to camp,” Okulolo said. “But Jordan loves it. It’s been
the best possible experience for him.”
This past summer, Jordan played sports, made art and graduated to level three in the
Y’s learn-to-swim program. Shy and reserved at first, Jordan eventually formed strong
friendships. Other campers loved to watch his dance moves and Jordan’s obsession to earn
the colored beads counselors use to recognize good behavior or helpfulness exerted a
powerful influence on other kids.
“He was a dream camper,” said Lee Hungle, the day camp’s director. “He demonstrated to
all the kids what responsibility means, what respect means and how to show caring.” Those
three traits — core values of the YMCA — are integral to the camp’s program.
Onome Okololo and her two children
love the Y’s family programs.
The YMCA of the Central Bay Area’s commitment to give all children access to a summer
camp experience — no matter what their parents can afford — makes the experience
richer for everyone. “This community is about diversity,” Hungle explained. “The kids are
from all different ethnicities and family backgrounds. At camp, they see diversity as typical.
Economic differences don’t set anyone apart.”
So Much More than Tutoring: Y-Scholars Helps Promising Teen Find
Academic Path
Thafir Elzofri is a friendly 17-year-old with a thoughtful demeanor. Born in Berkeley into a
Yemeni immigrant family, Thafir is navigating his way into college: he maintains a high GPA,
studies daily at the Y-Scholars college preparation program and makes the most of the
program’s public speaking opportunities.
For most students as bright and disciplined as Thafir, college would be a given — he is enrolled
in four advanced placement courses, including calculus. Thafir is attempting not only to improve
his opportunities but also reshape his family’s traditions, in which arranged marriage — and
having children — usually occur early in life.
“Marriage came up when I was 14 or 15,” Thafir recalls. “I had to tell my grandfather I didn’t
want to do that. I wanted to pursue my education.”
A self-described shy teenager, Thafir said he found in Y-Scholars the close-knit community he
couldn’t access on Berkeley High School’s large campus. The program gives him a peer group
that understands him: students from immigrant families or families where college is not the
presumed track. It gives him support: tutors and college counselors who give him the help
he needs to apply to college. And it gives him quiet: with 16 members in his household, he
says the second-floor study area at the YMCA-PG&E Teen Center is one place where he can
“At school there’s a college counselor but there’s always a line of people waiting to see him,”
Thafir explains. “You can’t get an hour of his attention. At Y-Scholars, I can work one-on-one
with counselor for as long as I need.” Weekly meetings with his counselor include editing his
college application essay, narrowing down his college search and researching scholarships.
Thafir’s counselors at the teen center say his maturity and can-do attitude impress them.
Thafir says his Y-Scholar mentors have inspired him to be a counselor or perhaps a math
teacher. “My experience with (Y-Scholars) has provided me with everything I need to even
believe I can go to college,” Thafir wrote in a personal essay. “After college, I hope to come
back and volunteer.”

So Much More Than a Weight Loss Program
Vicki Dempsey says she used to be very good at dieting. For years the petite 67-year-old
writer was a serial dieter, gaining and losing the same amount of weight over and over.
“When I finished [the diet], I felt like I had a plaque on the wall. Then gradually I’d slip back
into the old behaviors,” she said.
Vicki Dempsey,
Downtown Berkeley YMCA
member since 2000.
In 2010 Vicki started to suffer from acute knee pain. She used a cane and often had to
hoist herself up the banister when she walked upstairs. Told by her doctor that her only
recourse was to replace her knee, Vicki decided to follow up on an announcement about a
new weight-loss program called Changes at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA.
Starting with a 12-week intensive course of exercise, nutrition lectures and support group
meetings, Vicki gradually built stamina and muscle tone, improved her diet and bonded
with her cohort. After the course, she continued to meet for exercise with her small group
under the direction of a personal trainer. She lost 35 pounds permanently. Her knee pain
disappeared. And she gained something too.
What began as a group of individuals looking for a healthier lifestyle, developed into a
long-lasting supportive group of friends. They still meet at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA
for exercise in addition to social gatherings. Vicki now gives back to the Y by sharing her
story with new members of the Changes program.
“Whatever your motivation is, if you really want to change, the help you need is here,” Vicki
wrote in her motivational speech. “In this fabulous place, the Y is holding out its hand to
So Much More than a Volunteer: Jules Mayer Worked with Hands and
No one championed the cause of children more than Jules Mayer, a visionary former
volunteer leader of the YMCA who passed away last spring at the age of 94. A former
board of directors’ member and board chair during the 1980s and ‘90s, Mayer embodied
the Y’s mission of social responsibility. When the Downtown Berkeley YMCA struggled
with stagnant membership and an aging infrastructure in the early 1990s, Jules led an
ambitious, $6 million campaign to revamp and expand the original building. Membership
jumped as a result, and the Y was transformed from a gym to the cornerstone community
organization it is today.
A former engineer, Jules once designed and built an approximately 100,000-gallon
underwater reservoir for a YMCA camping site. Located on a mountainside, it used gravity
to maintain water flow and pressure. Pumps were built alongside a nearby river and later a
well was dug to fill the reservoir. Mayer supervised it all with the help of a committed corps
of YMCA volunteers and others from Berkeley. At its height, the camp served about 800
“His motivations were so simple: he believed that the Y should provide all the richness it
always has for kids,” said Tom Ratcliff, a YMCA board of directors’ member and former
board chair. “He had a social justice model that he never talked about in lofty terms. What
he wanted to know was, what’s the problem and how are we going to solve it?”
Jules will greatly be missed, but his legacy lives on through his four children, his six
grandchildren, two great-granchildren and through his generosity to the Y. Mayer, an
extraordinarily generous donor and member of the Heritage Club, which supports bequests
to the YMCA, inspired many people to give. But it was his sound judgment, passion and
clarity that gave people confidence. “Jules had a bold position on doing whatever we
needed to do to take our organization to the next level,” said Fran Gallati, president and
CEO of the YMCA of the Central Bay Area. “If he hadn’t been willing to take risks, the Y
would be a lot less vital than it is today.”
In Loving Memory
Jules Mayer

At the Y, we do great things every day. We spark curiosity, we ignite a love of learning and we
transform lives through health and wellness — every single day. And we couldn’t do it without your
support. Thank you to every single donor who has made a contribution to our Y.
