Inspiring change from the inside

Our Mission

We inspire vulnerable youth to unlock their life's potential.

Our Approach

On the journey to helping youth reach their life's potential, we first recognize the fragile state of vulnerable youth and honor that through integrity, respect, and compassion. Our current and future programming, staff, and community partners MUST agree to do the same.

Our three agency pillars are celebrate, access, and self-sufficiency.

Celebrate

We celebrate youth on their birthday and every other milestone in between to let them know they are valued, worthy and we care about them. To be eligible to receive a Birthday Bundle or attend a Birthday Bash, the youth must have an open case in the state of Washington. Any adult in the life of the youth can make a request for their FREE cake, cupcakes, or cake pops and birthday party supplies below.

Access

You can't be
what you can't see 

-Marian Wright Edelman-

Youth programming and community engagement are at the core of our strategy. We invest heavily in supporting the development of practical solutions and delivering educational opportunities that are value packed and provide access to the skills and opportunities that will help youth safely explore entrepreneurship.

Self-sufficiency 

Self-sufficiency  is the greatest wealth  

-Epicurus

Once a youth feels valued and loved, they are open and able to receive the education and training only we provide. The whole world just experienced one of the most uncertain times we have faced in our lifetime. Many adults with degrees making a good living, were left unemployed due to the pandemic. Do you know the demographic that was least effected? Small business owners who had at home businesses!  

 

We believe that youth learn best through play, through hands-on experiences. We offer youth one-of-a-kind trainings in home-based entrepreneurial opportunities that can be scaled into brick and mortar business like making custom items like t-shirts, mugs, tumblers, stickers, cakes, and so much more. 

About CYF

We build youth leadership skills and social emotional intelligence by providing practical hands-on entrepreneurial opportunities and education through our social cause, birthday parties for foster children.

 

We envision being Pierce County’s hub for youth entrepreneurship, increasing graduation rates of vulnerable youth by offering alternative credit for completing our courses and increasing Pierce County’s workforce and business community by training and supporting foundationally strong business owners.
