Youth Investment Center in Puyallup celebrates 10 years of service to at-risk teens

The Youth Investment Center was founded in 2006, originating out of Friends and Servants, a nonprofit founded in 1992 by Bill Bowers that aimed to connect at-risk teenagers and juvenile offenders back to the community via service projects and job skills training. The YMCA of Pierce and Thurston Counties acquired Friends and Servants in 2002 and in 2006 opened the Youth Investment Center in the former Cornforth Campbell car dealership building leased to the YMCA by the city of Puyallup.
