We're almost halfway there!
May 09, 2017
In 2014, I was paired with my match, Alexis, for 3 years. Last year I had the tear-jerking honor of watching her graduate high school and begin her studies at Eastern Washington University.
Alexis had to overcome incredible obstacles during her teen years. It would have been easy to give up and skip college, even though her aspirations required it. CFY gave Alexis a support structure that celebrated her in all her many facets and cheered her on as she reached for graduation, college, and beyond.
Think about the people supported you through the tumult of high school or other challenging phases in your life - parents, friends, mentors, unexpected angels - and make a gift with those precious helpers in mind. Your donation will help many more students, with their own unique talents and challenges, get the loving support they need and deserve through Community for Youth.

Hats Off 2017 is an exciting campaign supporting Seattle mentoring agency, Community for Youth. This year, we're celebrating the dedication of over 125 local high school students in this program including 29 seniors. CfY's participating seniors have a high school graduation rate of 94% - that's 17% higher than Seattle's 2016 public high school graduation rate!
