About

 

SFYC was founded in 1996 as a City of Seattle Human Services Department-operated program targeting at-risk Southeast Asian youth and families.  SFYC became a non-profit organization in June 1999, received IRS 501c3 status, and expanded our services to better serve a broader community, including East African, African American, Native American/Alaskan Native, Latino, Pacific Islander, and other populations.

The Youth Center’s prevention and intervention programs and services aim to reduce youths’ involvement in the juvenile justice system, gangs, and school truancy and drop out.
