Youth and Family Services

Our youth programs and resource centers provide a safe space for children and young people to reach their potential as students and community members. Neighborhood House program specialists and tutors work with 6 to 18 year olds through after-school mentoring, college-readiness support, and engagement in STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities. We also work with young adults aged 14 to 21 who have left the traditional school system to set and achieve educational and career goals.

Youth and Family Services 

We provide place-based and 1:1 services to serve youth and young adults, from the age of 5 to 24, in South King County. While our main focus is on the BIPOC community, we welcome youth and young adults from all backgrounds. We believe in providing safe spaces for each youth to work with reliable adult mentors in order to explore their potential in areas of their interest. We also welcome parents and other adults in the home to work with us to remove barriers for youth and young adults to explore, create and plan their future. Ultimately, we hope our youth and young adults will thrive and graduate high school, seek post-secondary options and gain a career of their choice.
