Get To Know The Unified Outreach Team
Building a COMMUNITY Where All Youth Are Safe and Valued
Who We Are
Founded in 1998 Unified Outreach is a unique Arts-based 501c3 Charity that provides programs to community centers, public and private schools, transitional housing/youth shelters, and other organizations seeking to provide industry level Arts instruction to children in Seattle’s under-served neighborhoods.
OUR MISSION is to assist under-served, at-risk, disabled, and arts-starved youth with personal growth and character-building using the Arts to break down racial, economic, and social barriers, to inspire creativity, to build confidence, and to promote positive self-esteem.
We have a 20-year history of providing enrichment classes to K-5 students, work-readiness classes to 13-18-year-old opportunity youth, a free to the public community arts magazine (www.Vibrantart.org), as well as multiple free community events that bring neighbors together; including cultural celebrations, fashion & runway extravaganza’s, talent shows, and race & culture dialogue forums.
Our Board is made up of over 70% of people of color, over 50% women; with our teaching staff reflecting similar numbers. Our leadership team prides itself on being student/client-driven when it comes to class offerings and we make every effort to provide the art training classes and community events that our students and families want to see, which is why we boast one of the most eclectic teaching rosters in the city.
