Has the system got you down? Do you have goals and want support achieving them? Do you need resource connections or a friendly face to meet you where you’re at? Do you want to develop your independence and a clear sense of self?

 

THE PROGRAM

Student Advocates provides one-on-one support to young people ages 12-18, who are at-risk of experiencing and/or perpetuating violence. We’ll support you in achieving goals that you set for yourself and connect you to programs and resources that are beneficial for you. Whether you want to improve your grades, get a job, find independent housing, participate in fun programs, or just want someone to talk to you - we’re here for you.

 

WHO

Girls* who live in and/or go to school in Seattle - specifically Central, Southeast, and Southwest Regions of Seattle. Specific eligibility determined upon risk assessment intake.

WHY

1:1 support provides individualized care and support which we tailor and adapt to meet everyone’s unique needs.
