Sound Youth VISTA Programs
Sound Youth currently partners with seven nonprofit organizations: Boys and Girls Club Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse at Rainier Vista, Catholic Community Services Youth Tutoring Program, Cleveland High School, Girls on the Run, the Hepatitis Education Project, Outdoors for All and YouthCare.
At these sites members do everything from provide health education to at-risk teens, to empowering youth with disabilities through outdoor recreation, to supporting commercially sexually exploited young women, to creating after school tutoring and enrichment programs.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Sound Youth seeks help to support VISTA members with trainings and education. Training allows members to more effectively serve the community by bringing new ideas to sites and increasing their effectiveness at capacity building.
Sound Youth is proud to have several sites graduating this year. Members were able to build successful, sustainable programs that reach Seattle's youth.
