New Directions. Brighter Futures.

This holiday season, we are focusing on the importance of ENCOURAGEMENT in the lives of us all, but particularly in the lives of youth.
Without encouragement toward positive change, youth can feel lost. Growing up is never an easy thing, but without the help of others, it can become seemingly impossible.
That’s why ENCOURAGEMENT is at the heart of what we do at Community Youth Services. And YOU are a part of that when you give to us, financially, or through time and resources.
Our agency has been part of downtown Olympia for more than 40 years, providing a coordinated effort of 19 programs, that work together to help youth become safe, independent and successful adult members of our communities.
We are a United Way agency, helping homeless youth, foster children, youth in trouble with the law and those who need help becoming employable. We serve more than 4,000  youth AND their families each year.
Want to know more? Call us during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Reach us at 360-943-0780.
