Meet Our Partners in Helping Kids
Our work throughout King County would not be possible without the support of our incredible partner organizations, including the following.
Adobe Youth Voices ignites young people's creative confidence using advanced digital media tools and proven storytelling techniques. With increased creativity and belief in their own abilities, young people are more engaged in their education and better prepared for the fast-changing global economy. A partner since August 2013, this program focuses on working with teens at our Club sites.
The City of Seattle supports Boys & Girls Clubs of King County's Delinquency Intervention and Prevention program through the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative. Each year, more than 300 teens and their families receive targeted support from this program.
The Nature Consortium Youth Art Program teaches environmental lessons through the creative arts and hands-on conservation projects by providing accessible culturally and environmentally influenced art classes for youth ages 5-19. The program offers a variety of dynamic classes designed to increase participants' artistic skills, social competence and environmental stewardship.
School's Out Washington has been a key partner in our efforts to encourage youth and develop quality programming.
Boys & Girls Clubs' alignment with Seattle schools allows our programs to serve more youth by utilizing available school space. We help to ensure that academic outcomes are prioritized and that kids receive the help they need to keep their grades up and move toward graduation.
United Way is our largest private funder, providing an annual general operating award and occasional project-related grants. The agency also funds our Meal Programs Director, a position shared with the YMCA.
The UW's Dream Project is a student-initiated college-access and retention program that partners UW students with first-generation US-born children and low-income students in Seattle-area high schools. Dream Project volunteers work with teens in our YouthForce program to lead them through the college admissions process.
Through a grant from United Way, the YMCA of Greater Seattle provides us with 50% of the time of our shared Meal Programs Director position.
Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC) gives young people the opportunity to learn, lead, work, thrive, contribute and connect—all with active support from organized, networked and unified youth development efforts in King County.
