Y-WE strives to create a safe space for young people and adults as we learn, grow, and thrive in community. Our community is struggling to make ends meet, which inhibits the ability to thrive. We support the I-135 ballot initiative that will provide critical social housing across Seattle.
The Y-WE community is rooted in the principals of creating a society where all of us have agency over our own bodies. We must now be there for each other as we navigate through the times ahead.
On June 4 we gathered together with community at Marra Farm to celebrate those who will be “graduating” from Y-WE Programs, and becoming Y-WE Alum. Check out these impactful remarks from our keynote speakers!
Last but certainly not least, our final video in the Y-WE Bloom series features Naomi, a member of our Youth Leadership Council! A HUGE thank you to everyone who came together to make this beautiful campaign and video series happen, and to everyone who has followed along. It has been an honor to highlight some of the voices that create the gorgeous community that is Y-WE.
Our next story in the Y-WE Bloom series comes from Nikai! Nikai has been a participant in Y-WE Programs for the past several years and we are so grateful for everything she brings to our community.
Meet Nora, a Y-WE Alum & Mentor. Nora describes Y-WE as “that force or energy there that will always catch you [if you fall].” We are so grateful for Nora’s long-lasting and impactful participation in our community!
