We help low-income youth build successful futures by offering essential academic and social support. We also work with parents, helping them understand how to be effective advocates for their children.

Youth Case Management: A different path, a strong future
Our staff work with students in south King County who have left the traditional classroom, helping them set and achieve goals for graduation, career and beyond. Drawing on their skills and interests, we place them in internships and paying jobs, assist them in accessing post-secondary education options, and help them succeed. We work with various re engagement and GED programs to reduce any barriers to success youth may be facing.
Our three locations:
Kent: Located in the Kent Learning Center, youth are able to attend the Renton Technical College GED program or a local Re-Engagement program. Contact Rovella James (253) 856-5355 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Des Moines: Located at Highline College, youth are able to attend the Project Scope Re- Engagement program. Contact Angel Berry (206) 739-3771 or email@example.com.
Burien: Located in The Learning Center North and Learning Center South. Contact Kipp Gallagher (206) 765-8739 firstname.lastname@example.org
We are working with kids to get them excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This program is geared toward middle and high school students hailing from underserved communities that have limited access to STEM education and opportunities. Through our partnership with the University of Washington, UW STEM students mentor STUDIO youth to explore their own STEM interests and offer support in college and career readiness.
