A Letter from Our Executive Director

Thank you to everyone who supported our 14th Annual Community for Youth Auction Gala. For the second year in a row, we set new revenue and attendance records, as we raised over $365,000 with 309 guests in attendance. You have given hope to so many students and families this year. Thank you!
Your investment means that Community for Youth can be a lifeline for students when they need help. You’re also doing so much more than helping one student at a time. When you make a gift, it allows us to provide professional support to both students and mentors. We can coach mentors to help their students through challenges in school and at home.
As spring approaches, our senior students are preparing for graduation and life after high school. This is an exciting as well as a scary time for them. We hope they will remember the lessons learned in our workshops as well as the many hours they spent with their mentors.
The short and long term impacts of your investments are far reaching and powerful. Can you imagine how the impact of mentoring ripples throughout our community? And, with the help of donors and volunteers like you, we’ve been sending these ripples through Seattle for over two decades! Thank you for your continued support of Community for Youth.
