Community for Youth’s mission is to inspire and support high school youth to be their best selves through mentoring, learning experiences, and a powerful community.
How We Work
Community for Youth (CfY) is a Seattle-based nonprofit with over 30 years of experience transformation of teens, mentors, and community in South Seattle through one-on-one mentorship, community building activities, and facilitated workshops. CfY has a unique model of curriculum which provides community building opportunities for students and mentors alike.
CfY offers an academic year (October – June) program that is designed to step past traditional mentoring practices and offers an experience that centers the young person, addresses the systems and environments that shape a young person’s experience, and that partners with young people to provide opportunity brokering and social change. Through our program, youth have access to developing as leaders, social and emotional skill building, and lasting positive relationships with peers and caring adults. Our program works to co-create a community where each member feels seen, respected, and supported.
Equal Opportunity Employment
Community for Youth is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all applicants and employees regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, marital status, age, the presence of a disability, or any other basis protected by applicable federal, state or local laws. Our equal opportunity policy applies to all phases of employment, including recruiting, hiring, job assignment, supervision, training, upgrading, transfer, compensation, benefits, promotion, education, and recreation, layoff and termination.
