The program is run by YFSB SROs and Counselors, in partnership with the SF Giants Community Fund and the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD). In addition to learning basic baseball skills, the Junior Giants participate in programs that encourage education, healthy eating, violence prevention and positive character development. The kids also receive free breakfast and lunch through the ‘Let’s Do Lunch Hayward … and breakfast too’ Program. The SF Giants Community Fund provides all of the uniforms, equipment, and training necessary to run a league, as well as prizes and tickets to select Giants games so youth can experience Major League Baseball.

The Junior Giants program was initially developed to give at-risk kids an alternative to drugs, gangs, and crime. The program is still doing this for the Hayward community, reaching more than 500 kids and their families every summer. The program continues to expand to create as many opportunities as possible for Hayward youth to engage with their community through fun summer activities.

The Hayward league of the Junior Giants has been identified as one of the most successful Junior Giants programs.
