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

Catholic Community Services University District Youth Center, serving the University District and North Seattle
YMCA, serving southeast Seattle
YouthCare Orion Center, serving downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill

Mental-health advocate is also a symbol of recovery


For most of her life, Keris Myrick has struggled with mental illness. Now board president of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, she’s pushing for better access to care.

For much of her life, Keris Myrick has tried to silence the voices that filled her head with suicidal thoughts and repeatedly sent her to a psychiatric hospital.

But now, Myrick, 51, who has schizo-affective disorder, is embracing one voice that has grown loud and clear — her own. And as she becomes a symbol of recovery and strength in the face of mental illness, others are listening to what she has to say.

Stopping The Violence: “The Interrupters”

“The Interrupters” (download this important PDF click here)

Directed by Steve James. Produced by Alex Kotlowitz and Steve James.

Every City Needs Its Heroes.

An epic tale of courage and hope, The Interrupters is a new film from Chicago-based director/producer Steve James (Oscar-nominated for Hoop Dreams) and award-winning author-turned-producer Alex Kotlowitz (There Are No Children Here), whose original article inspired the film.

Filmed out of Chicago’s Kartemquin Films, The Interrupters follows a year in the life of the city as it grapples with the plague of urban violence. At the heart of the story are Ameena Matthews, Cobe Williams and Eddie Bocanegra, each of whom has credibility on the street because of their own personal histories.

With gumption, wisdom and wit, they work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed. These “Violence Interrupters” (their job title) — work for CeaseFire, a local organization whose guiding principle is that the spread of violence mimics the spread of infectious diseases, and so respond with similar treatment: go after the most infected, and stop the infection at its source.

See it this summer and fall: http://www.theinterrupters.com

CAPITOL HILL CRIME PREVENTION WEEK – JULY 16 thru JULY 22

The Seattle Action Network would like to propose that during the Capitol Hill Block Party, that we all get together and declare “Crime Prevention Week’. The whole city should be declaring this, however they are not. So I feel maybe we will, or area by area, will make citizens become more responsible to themselves and their communities. Let’s hope so…

What is a “Job”?


A job is a regular activity performed in exchange for payment. A person usually begins a job by becoming an employee, volunteering, or starting a business. The duration of a job may range from an hour (in the case of odd jobs) to a lifetime (in the case of some judges). If a person is trained for a certain type of job, they may have a profession. The series of jobs a person holds in their life is their career…


Day Labor

Day laborers find work through three common routes.

First, some employment agencies specialize in very short-term contracts for manual labor most often in construction, factories, offices, and manufacturing. These companies usually have offices where workers can arrive and be assigned to a job on the spot, as they are available.

A manager looking for additional labor to fill an unexpected change in plans is presented with a problem of finding the needed quantity of labor with the right skills. Imagine the magnitude of the task of looking for workers, on the side of the street or by calling various employment agencies, who can verify they are journeyman asphalt rakers, typist, programmers, etc.

The benefit of representation is applied to both the labor and employer. Labor is given a source of recourse to achieve a safe work environment free of favoritism and arbitrary work assignments. Employers benefit from organized labor training programs, benefit plans, dispute resolution and a labor supply meeting most employers labor demand at most any time or place. The benefit of a labor supply arriving at a specified time and location within less than a days notice is reduced overhead resources.

More than 49 million Americans — even more than thought — live in poverty, new measure finds


In September, the government reported that a record 46.6 million Americans were living in poverty. But a new report released Monday by the Census Bureau using a more sophisticated method to measure poverty rates has found that the true figure is even higher: 49.1 million, or 16 percent of all Americans…
