We partner with the education, government, and philanthropic sectors to ensure young people can reach their full potential


We convene or participate in cross-sector collaborations to improve the alignment of efforts supporting children and youth in King County.

Why cross-sector collaboration?

We know that no sector is able to support kids and families alone, or in isolation from the other environments in which kids spend their time. YDEKC works to organize the youth development sector to participate in collective impact efforts to ensure the ecosystem of supports for kids in King County is strong.

How do we support cross-sector collaboration?
