Thriving Leaders. Thriving Organizations. Thriving Youth.

Youth Development Executives of King County works to build the strength and cohesion of the youth development field in King County. We are guided by three programmatic goals in the following areas:


  1. Advocacy: Represent the needs of the youth development field to partners and policy makers at multiple jurisdictions, and raise awareness on issues affecting King County youth
  2. Cross-Sector Collaboration: Partner with education, government, and philanthropic sectors to ensure young people can reach their full potential
  3. Leadership & Organizational Development: Support leadership and organizational development in youth serving non-profits
