Instead of heading into traffic right after work, take an hour and change a child's life! Become a one-to-one tutor for a student living in low-income housing.
"What I like most about YTP is interacting with my neighbors! If it weren't for the program, I wouldn't know these kids or parents."--YTP Volunteer
The Youth Tutoring Program, a part of Catholic Community Services, serves elementary, middle school and high school students who live in one of the 6 tutors center communities throughout Seattle. Children come in to their neighborhood center for tutoring twice a week, and build up a relationship with their tutors.
Volunteers support students in building skills in math and reading, homework, and enrichment activities. Our program matches volunteers one-on-one with students to tutor and inspire them to succeed both academically and personally. If you have a passion for education and want to engage with the youth in your community, volunteer as a tutor!
We provide a free 2-hour tutor training and offer continued trainings throughout the year. Details: SCHOOL YEAR M/T/W/Th: 3 sessions from 4:20 to 7:40PM Volunteers sign up for at least 1 hour per week, and are asked to commit to volunteering for at least six months. The minimum age for volunteering is 14, and high school students are encouraged to volunteer!
Our school year program begins Monday, September 19th.
