To connect Washington’s youth and young professionals (including youth-led organizations) to each other and to resources needed to build stronger pipelines to meaningful career and learning opportunities.
Youth United is a state-wide, online communications platform for local youth and young adults looking to connect with each other to find career and learning opportunities, ask career-related questions, share resources and events, and more! This Forum is a program of our local nonprofit, Seattle Good Business Network.
In an environment where the right opportunity is often scarce, competitive, or inaccessible, this initiative is meant to bring together youth with common goals and values to ensure a more reliable pipeline of opportunity, awareness, and connectivity.
The Seattle Made Youth Board launched Youth United in May 2020 with the goal of making a centralized communications platform for other young adults to pursue meaningful learning and career opportunities.
Youth United connects its members on a communications platform called Mobilize, and is available to individuals 16-24 years of age, looking to pursue a meaningful career pathway, share resources and connect with the community, and find meaningful learning and career-based opportunities for themselves and each other.
Join and help us build a community where conversations are led by Seattle’s youth and young adults!
Below is a list of Youth-led organizations to serve as a one-stop hub for young adults to more easily find and contact. If you’re a local youth and want to get involved in your community, check out one of these amazing Seattle-based youth organizations!
