KIRO Radio, the Seattle Seahawks and Carter Subaru are proud to announce the December 2021 Charity of the Month is Community Passageways, proud steward of the Youth Achievement Center in partnership with Creative Justice and Africatown Community Land Trust.
Community Passageways is a local non-profit organization that creates alternatives to incarceration for youth and young adults by rebuilding our communities through committed relationships centered on love, compassion, and consistency.
More about the Youth Achievement Center:
The Youth Achievement Center will be more than just a community center. It will offer more than 45,000 square feet of housing, services, and community space to more than 100 young people—designed for and by youth.
BIPOC Youth in South Seattle currently lack access to on the ground, culturally responsive services that meet their needs. The YAC will provide service spaces on the South End, so Community Passageways, the YAC owner, and Creative Justice, a YAC co-operator, can expand their current service offerings which focus on detention diversion, restorative justice, career training, and youth leadership development.
