YDEKC’s mission is to connect, strengthen and amplify the leaders of youth serving organizations so that all Black, Indigenous and youth of color thrive.
 
YDEKC is a diverse coalition of youth-serving, community-based, and non-profit organizations across King County. With a focus on equity, our members embrace a youth development approach to support BIPOC young people to reach the future they envision. Our members partner with schools, communities, and families to ensure every young person has what they need to learn, grow, and thrive.
 
YDEKC strives to center antiracist policies and practices in our work to ensure that leaders at every organizational level have opportunities to strengthen their skills and peer networks to advance along their own pathway. We also work to strengthen the youth development field through advocacy and awareness-raising of the critical work that our sector does to build the ecosystem of supports young people need to thrive.
 
YDEKC Member Organizations are community-based and non-profit organizations directly serving youth ages five through young adulthood within King County.
 
Please check out our website for more details about YDEKC Memberships, including the Benefits to Members.

☼ Member Commitment Form
 
In order to better understand our members, to tailor communications, and for our internal planning purposes we collect information about what you do, where and for whom you provide programming, as well as the demographics of your ED/CEO as we believe the diversity of the field is critical information.
 
This form is the best way we've found to collect baseline information about our Members. We use the organizational information you share with us to do our work better:
  • We advocate for durable, equitable, and sustainable funding for the youth development sector, and we help our members learn about relevant funding opportunities.
  • We build trust and collaboration between organizations and across sectors, and we work to build partnerships and affinity groups based on service type, region, or other criteria.
  • We support the social emotional well-being of our members and the young people they serve, and we share information about strategies and upcoming events.
  • We are led by our members, and we support them to be led by the people they serve.
The more data each Member organization shares with us, the better we can do our work to strengthen youth-serving organizations and the youth development field!
