Youth Development

Youth1The goal of our Youth Development Program is to provide learning and leadership opportunities that increase the personal, academic, and social skills youth need to be successful in life.

Our diverse menu of services has proven highly effective in connecting with youth and keeping them engaged in their quest to build a healthy and productive life. Participants become more grounded and optimistic and are less likely to fall prey to despair, hopelessness, or destructive activities.

Academic Support: This component is designed to assist youth in making improvements in basic academic skills, while motivating them to excel academically. Services take place after school and include tutoring and homework help.

Service Learning: Our Youth Development program sponsors community service or service learning projects to encourage youth to give back to the community. This includes projects such as volunteering at homeless shelters, creating public art installations, visiting with the disabled and elderly, and assisting with special projects.

Social and Leadership Development Skills: This component consists of structured activities and support groups with the goal of developing young people's social skills, leadership potential and social responsibility, while promoting a strong anti-violence message.

Drop In Teen Center: The Youth Development program maintains a Teen Center in southeast Seattle, which provides a safe place for youth to go after school. Youth can socialize, work on homework, or use the games and other recreational equipment we have available.
