All Girl Everything Ultimate Program (AGE UP) invests in black, indigenous, and people of color youth in South Seattle. Our community is rooted in ultimate frisbee and committed to justice.
We envision a world without oppression, where young people are free to be their whole selves, and have the relationships and healing they need to lead and thrive.
AGE UP is all about community building, youth leadership, adult allies, collective learning, social justice, healing, and lots of Ultimate Frisbee. We run programs focused on anti-oppression work, create safe spaces for young people to share their truths, provide free and accessible summer camps, and support coaching at various elementary, middle and high schools in Seattle's Southend. A deep commitment to youth leadership has always defined our approach. For young people to be genuinely involved in issues that impact their lives, they must be at the table, respected for their expertise, and able to participate in decision-making. Young people who have participated in our programs come back and are hired to coordinate and organize programs, serve as full voting board members, facilitate workshops, run field trips and retreats, raise funds, and coach and mentor in their own communities. We are excited to continue investing in the leadership of southend youth and our own staff, and potentially find a new office in 2023 (our staff has worked remotely since 2020!).
This year, our goal is to reach 350 individual donors and raise $50K on the GiveBIG site!
