About

Community for Youth's mission is to inspire and support the social, emotional, and academic development of students through mentoring, learning experiences, and a powerful community.

Our unique model ensures that both students and mentors benefit from being part of CfY. We match mentors with high school students following a weekend of community-building, fun, and collaborative learning at Camp Colman, located on the Olympic Peninsula.

Mentors and students commit a minimum of 10 hours per month, meeting each Thursday evening from mid-January through mid-June. Weekly activities vary from meeting one-on-one, in small groups and in larger groups for directed workshops that address social-emotional and life skills, including identity-development, resilience, goal-setting and more. The diversity of topics and group sizes ensures that our students and their mentors feel both valued and supported every step of the way.
