Education, Employment and Youth Services
In 2010-11, Sea Mar began providing education, employment and youth services in partnership with the City of Seattle, Everett Community College and Monroe School District. Services are offered by staff located at Sea Mar’s Cannon House in the Central District of Seattle, and a youth re-engagement program is provided at Everett Community College.
Latino/a Educational Achievement Project — Statewide
The Latino/a Educational Achievement Project (LEAP) is a statewide effort to improve academic achievement of Latino students in Washington state. Current activities include an annual conference, student leadership and service-learning program, and advocacy training.

In 2011, a student leadership and service-learning program known as the Peer Leaders and Ambassadors, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, was developed to involve students in college awareness and readiness activities, leadership, civic engagement, and community service.

Youth Employment — Seattle                                                          
The Seattle Youth Employment Program is conducted in partnership with the City of Seattle and Metrocenter YMCA. The program provides low-income youth, ages 16-18, who are behind in school with opportunities to improve their academic skills in the summer while they participate in a paid work experience. Students also benefit from workshops during the school year that help them with tutoring, attendance, job-finding skills, SAT preparation and post-secondary education exploration.

   
Youth Violence Prevention Initiative — Seattle     
Funded by the City of Seattle, this program provides intensive case-management services to youth ages 12-17. Services target youth involved in the juvenile justice system, middle school students at risk of suspension, and those impacted by violence in the community. Trained guidance counselors re-engage youth in education, help resolve court issues, and connect youth with resources such as drug/alcohol counseling, family counseling, health services, and housing support. Students also receive employment assistance, post-secondary exploration opportunities, and community service opportunities.
   
Youth Re-Engagement — Everett
The Youth Re-engagement (U3) program was created to provide educational opportunities for youth ages 16-21 who have dropped out of high school. This dual-credit program enables students to concurrently work toward a high school diploma and a college degree.

When students enroll in the U3 program, tuition, class fees and books are paid. They receive intensive and holistic case management services, including tutoring, advising, career counseling, and use of all campus resources. 

 

Please contact us if you are interested in participating in any of the EEYS programs. And, we invite you to take advantage of the many excellent health and social services provided through Sea Mar Community Health Centers.
