Building In Youth is a member of the:

Lower Columbia Contractors Association,

Mentoring Works WA,

Education Northwest (formerly Oregon Mentors,) 

Christian Association of Youth Mentoring and

National Mentoring Partnership


Skilled mentors building into the lives of youth can encourage students to believe in themselves and their potential to make a difference.


Mentor training provided to adults builds their confidence to share knowledge and experience.  Genuine relationships built between generations promote good work habits, initiative, responsibility and self-confidence.  


Phil and Lucy Hayes are the full-time directors of Building In Youth.  Thirty years of experience building hundreds of homes in King and Snohomish counties as well as raising their three sons provids a solid background for this program. 


Since BiY’s inception in 2011, the focus has been to build a strong foundation.  In order to sustain the program, providing modest salaries and benefits for the directors is an important catalyst.

Would you consider partnering with Building In Youth

through a financial gift to help impact these young lives?
