CYW is committed to providing benefits that are competitive with for-profit as well as non-profit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. We offer a variety of program choices, in the areas of health and wellness, flexible spending, retirement investment and employee assistance and staff development.
CYW offers a range of medical plan options. Employees may choose medical services through a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). CYW also offers dental care and vision plans. Employer paid option is available for the employee.
CYW offers an employee funded 401(k) plan to all employees as pre-tax contribution.
With this plan, employees are able to set aside pre-tax dollars in flexible spending accounts, for non-reimbursed medical expenses and for dependent care.
This program is designed to assist an employee and/or their eligible dependents in resolving life problems or concerns.
It is our goal to provide encouragement, assistance and opportunities for professional development of employees.
CYW believes that employees need time away from work for rest and relaxation. CYW provides its employees with a generous PTO policy each year. PTO can be taken during periods of sickness, to recuperate after illness or injury, to attend doctor’s appointments, or to care for family members. In addition, CYW observes 12 holidays a year.

The Center for Youth Wellness (CYW) is part of a national effort to revolutionize pediatric medicine and transform the way society responds to kids exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress. Started in 2012, by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, now California’s first Surgeon General, CYW is a health organization partnering with the Bayview Child Health Center to serve children and families in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco.
Currently led by Interim CEO, Gatanya Arnic, CYW was created to respond to an urgent public health issue: early adversity harms the developing brains and bodies of children.
We are a fast-paced, results-oriented organization that is growing rapidly. Our work has been featured at local, statewide and national levels including contribution to The Shriver Report, partnership with Hillary Clinton and Next Generation’s Too Small to Fail Initiative, hosting California’s first Statewide Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Summit and plenary presentations at the national meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We’re poised to continue growing our model of clinical intervention, applied research and advocacy in the relentless pursuit of our goal to improve the health of children and adolescents exposed to ACEs.
