The COVID-19 outbreak, extended school closures and social distancing have deepened inequities and hardships for young people across Washington. In response, Seattle CARES and other youth development programs had to quickly adapt their services to support these critical audiences.
Late last year, Seattle CARES received a grant from School’s Out Washington and the Washington State Department of Commerce to continue its important work. In all, $9.4 million was awarded to 421 organizations across the state, many serving youth and families.
This week, Seattle CARES, and its work with scholars in the Rising program, were featured on the “Community Spotlight” page on the Elevate Washington website.
