THE STORY:

Hi gang!


As many of you know, this is my 6th year as Treasurer of Community for Youth and I couldn't be prouder. When I first started, we had NO full time staff and were scraping by with one part time bookeeper and all volunteers. Today we have FIVE full time staffers and continue to serve more and more students each year. 


Unlike other programs like Big Brothers/Big Sisters, CfY is unique because we let our students choose their mentors, they aren't randomly assigned.  The difference this makes is powerful, as our students know that they have a mentor in their corner that "gets" them. 


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!


We’re not just a mentoring organization — we’re a community. Our structured life-skills curriculum that includes community workshops and one-on-one mentoring opportunities provides a critical network of support for our students that goes beyond a traditional mentorship program. Help us to serve more students by donating today! I thank you deeply for your support.


Your friend, 


Eric
