About the Alert System

Seattle Community Colleges students and staff members can sign up to receive text message and email alerts in case of a campus emergency or unplanned closure. Log in using your College SID and PIN to designate a cell phone number (for text message alerts) or the email address you’d like to use to receive alerts. You may use more than one number or email address. Alerts to staff members will go to the college email by default, and others can be added. The Seattle Community Colleges Alerts system will make a best effort to send messages if there is an emergency that causes the campus to close unexpectedly or if there is an incident that may pose a safety concern for the community.

City of Seattle: Ending Youth Homelessness


Homeless Youth Employment Services

PRO Youth Employment – The New Working Zone

Employment services are essential for homeless youth who have to support themselves and maintain stable housing.

The Working Zone provides employment training services to homeless young people by offering paid internships. It is part of PRO Youth, a partnership of the City of Seattle and seven local social service agencies operating throughout King County.

Each year, more than 100 homeless youth between the ages of 15 and 22 enroll at the Working Zone job sites. At these sites, youth gain employment skills including professional behavior, work ethics, job search and retention, writing, and customer service.

This Working Zone homeless youth employment program, started in 1994, is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development McKinney Act, and by City of Seattle General Funds. In 2011, approximately $96,895 in local funding leveraged an additional $315,270 in federal funds for the Working Zone.

2011 Funded Agencies and Programs

YMCA, serving southeast Seattle
YouthCare Orion Center, serving downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill
