Youth Services

The Seattle Human Services Department seeks to provide youth with the skills, knowledge, and support they need to lead healthy and productive lives. We work to keep youth in school, improve their academic achievement, help them learn job skills, and reduce criminal activity and violence, especially for youth facing multiple barriers to success due to poverty and racism.

Our services include case management, counseling, tutoring, opportunities for work experience, and leadership and social skills classes. We support homeless youth through a continuum of care designed to meet emergency needs while helping youth move into stable, permanent housing.

Our programs, services, and initiatives include:
