The Seattle Made Youth Board functions under the Seattle Made program, working with its member businesses and others. Seattle Made is a program of the umbrella nonprofit, Seattle Good Business Network. Learn more about our other programs here.


Strengthening the voice of local youth in Seattle’s emerging conversation about urban manufacturing, sustainability, and the future of our city’s economy. 


The Seattle Made Youth Board (SMYB) is composed of up to 9 local youth (ages 16-24), who are keen to learn about the role of the local economy in building more equitable communities and a healthier environment. Board members work creatively and collaboratively to build public awareness campaigns on issues that impact our city, ranging from the local food economy, slow fashion, urban sustainability, and more. Board members also help to inform our overall youth programming design and materials.

SMYB aims to provide relevant and equitable opportunities for all youth, and for young people from culturally and historically underrepresented communities to join!
