Well have you ever heard of Youthforce, www.teenjobs.org? Its an amazing group under the Boys and Girls club of King County. Do you know the Seahawks and Sounders organization have teamed with Youthforce for years to provide under served Seattle area teenagers an amazing opportunity in leadership, education, accountability but more important a future.
I recently attended a Youthforce board meeting where a very confident young man told us about his journey with immigrant parents and how important the Seahawks/ Sounders partnership was for him. This is only one of the success stories that this partnership has provided. Because of this program and partnership he is in the University of Washington Thriving.
As a board member for Youthforce, THANK YOU, Seattle Seahawks and Sounders for this partnership. Thank you, Paul Allen for giving us this opportunity and helping our Seattle teens. This partnership clearly represents your foundations statement, http://www.pgafoundations.com/default.aspx.
“All children deserve a high-quality education that prepares them for college, career, and life”. Next time you are at a game check our kids out at info booths, helping people out and providing the fun activities but please look deeper as this is their opportunity for success in a world where success is a dream.
