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.

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:
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!
