206Rising™ is about young people making positive choices. It's about following your passion for sports, music, arts, education, whatever you want to do to succeed in life instead of falling under the influence of drugs and alcohol. 206Rising™ is committed to advocating for positive environments for youth to grow and learn. We partner with various organizations around Seattle to create positive, fun, and drug free activities for youth.
Who's Behind 206Rising™
The SE Seattle P.E.A.C.E. Coalition (Prevention Education and Action for Community Empowerment) was formed in October 2012 by Southeast Seattle service providers, parents, Aki Kurose Middle School staff, and concerned citizens. The mission of our Coalition is to educate, empower, and mobilize Southeast Seattle to ensure our kids are safe, happy, and healthy so they can learn. Our Coalition strives to reduce and prevent youth substance abuse and violence in Southeast Seattle using culturally appropriate strategies.
