Our Impact

Conscious Leaders In Action

 

Since our establishment in 2014, WMCA has engaged over 250 ethnically diverse refugee youth from low-income Rainier Valley neighborhoods to serve as socially conscious leaders. In addition to weekly mentoring, the Young Community Builders work collaboratively to identify and plan large scale events and creative projects to celebrate each other, reinforce community cohesion and co-create more vibrant neighborhoods.

Check out our youth-driven projects below!

Through WMCA's programs, disadvantaged and immigrant youth are not contained or diverted, but grow and thrive by experiencing success and honing leadership skills as they work with one another to plan, build, and celebrate community.

YOUTH-LED PROJECTS & EVENTS

 

Rainier Vista Beautify the Block

 

 

With the help of  WMCA mentors, Rainier Vista youth planned and hosted one of the most engaging neighborhood block parties to celebrate youth voice and empowerment. To get neighbors connected to local resources, the young community builders secured participation from local organizations, small businesses, artists, and city council members. Young Community Builders also announced the premiere of their music video!
