This October, the 180 Program, a new strategic partner of Urban Impact received Seattle Met’s “Light A Fire Award”. The Seattle Met’s “Light A Fire Award” honors outstanding individuals and nonprofit organizations based in the Seattle metropolitan area that are working to make the city—and beyond—more prosperous, rewarding, and healthful for all our citizens. Winners are celebrated in the November 2015 issue of Seattle Met and honoured at a special awards event in the fall.

Founded in 2011, the 180 Program is run by Co-Program Directors Dominique Davis and Terrell Dorsey and gives an opportunity to youth who have been arrested for misdemeanors to get their charges dropped. 

We are thrilled and proud that the 180 Program has received this prestigious acknowledgment!
