Nick Adams is a Seattle native and a graduate from Bishop Blanchet High School and the University of Washington with a degree in American Ethnic Studies. Growing up in the foster care system has embedded in Nick the belief of a life of indomitable spirit. He is committed to ensuring all children have a safe, fun, educational, welcoming, and nourishing (mind, body and soul) environment where they can reach their greatest potential.

Nick joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County in 2015 after spending 4 years as a Field Supervisor working with the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department in the Central District and South Seattle Community Centers. The motto “One Team, One Dream” is what solidifies the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County as an organization of servant leadership and one he is proud to be a part of.


Favorite Boys & Girls Club Program: Keystone Teen Leadership Programs


Joined the Movement: December 2015


Personal Goal this Year: Grow our Teen Program by 50%.


Coolest thing I’ve witnessed since starting: The transformation of the Smilow Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club Community. The pride that the community, kids, families, and staff have when they say their Club’s name is second to none.
