Our mentors live in King County and make a positive difference in a young person’s life
The youth we serve deserve a chance to succeed and thrive. We want them to have the opportunity to attend safe schools, eat healthy food, and surround themselves with adults who care about them and encourage them to reach their full potential. Over the past 15 years, 4C mentoring programs have made great strides in this mission and have proven to be a powerful force for change.
The 4C Way
Founded in 1999, The 4C Coalition is a Seattle-area nonprofit offering evidenced-based programs that incorporate The Elements of Effective Practices for Mentoring. Youth in our programs are matched with mentors from a pool of conscientious adults who seek to share their hard-earned wisdom and engage with young people from a place of genuine interest and respect.
The 4C Mentoring Model is a win for both the mentee and the mentor. We recruit caring adults who long to give back to their communities–to share enriching experiences in a supportive, structured, and non-intimidating environment.
Non-parental mentors often provide the only reliable means for socializing the adolescent into the values of the adult world versus the values of the Internet, Facebook, or teen-centered media.
