CYS, a United Way affiliate, has been a successful and established non-profit in downtown Olympia for more than 45 years, providing an array of services to help a wide range of youth: those in foster care, those who need help finishing their educations or getting a job or finding a safe place to live, and those seeking meaningful ways to connect with society in a positive way. About 4,000 youth – and their families – seek our services annually. We offer 20 different programs that work singly and together to help young people become independent, successful adult members of society.

Want to help? We’re always looking for donations of time, funding or needed gently used items. Call us at 360-943-0780 to learn more.

Time to celebrate!

Each year we like to acknowledge our young people who have made outstanding strides toward their goals of success. We also like to applaud our dedicated volunteers AND the groups who advocate for young people daily in our community.

At our 2016 Youth and Community Awards, our youth will receive awards and funds that, with case manager approval, they can use to continue their path to success. Since MOST of our youth have received few applause in their lives, it's an amazing and heartwarming event. We're planning a luncheon this year and we'd like YOU to attend.

This is NOT a fund-raiser. All we request is that you help us pay for the meal, which is $20. If you like, you can also sponsor a "youth guest" for $20, meaning they could invite an additional family member or friend beyond the one we pay for.

The location has been donated to us by the downtown Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, 415 Capitol Way North, Olympia. (THANKS TO THEM!) It's set for Friday, May 20 at 11:30 a.m.

To reserve a spot, click this link and let us know your name! I'd love to attend the Youth and Community Awards!
