I've been mentoring and volunteering at Community for Youth for 7 years, and it has changed my life while also given me the privilege of supporting others. I have two mentees: Jane and Tonika. Both of them are wonderful, outstanding young women, who have now graduated high school, are working/studying full-time and continue to accomplish their goals. They're so inspirational! They were delt a tough hand by many standards, but played their cards exceptionally well -- with grit, grace and resilience. I love working with our students, and feel honored and lucky to be a part of CfY. It challenges me to constantly learn, grow and become a better person. Please join me in contributing to this fantastic organization!
From CfY -
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.
