Volunteers wanted for the Youth and Family Initiative!

During his inaugural address last month, Mayor McGinn announced a Youth and Family Initiative to engage as many Seattleites as possible in the process of identifying and helping to address the problems faced by our city’s families and youth; more information on the dates and times is available here.

We hope you can attend one of these engagement meetings to contribute your input and ideas to the broader conversation.

You can also make an enormous contribution to the success of the Initiative by giving some of your time, in the weeks leading up to the meetings and at the meetings themselves, to help us ensure that we are able to bring a multitude of different voices to the table and to effectively manage those voices once we are all together in the same room.

Please contact Sol Villarreal at or 206-233-2656 if you are interested in volunteering with the Youth and Family Initiative, and include any information you think I should know about you, your background, and your specific interests regarding youth and families.
