About

he Youth Tutoring Program is hosting an educational and fun-filled summer academic enrichment program for elementary and middle school students living in low-income housing communities. 99% of the students we serve are students of color and most come from immigrant or refugee families. Our students come from diverse backgrounds--representing many nationalities, cultures, languages and religions.

Most kids lose at least three months of academic progress over the summer, and it’s our goal to keep that from happening with our students. Help us achieve our goal by volunteering with YTP just once a week for six weeks, from July 9th-August 16th.

We are recruiting Summer Program Volunteers for afternoon and early evening volunteer positions at 4 of our tutoring centers this summer. These centers are open Monday through Thursday with a few exceptions:

High Point (West Seattle)- 1:00-2:30 and 2:45-4:15

Jackson Park (Lake City) - 2:00-3:30 and 3:30-5:00

Lake Washington Apartments (Rainier Beach) - 3:00-4:30 and 4:30-6:00 (Mon/Wed); 4:00-6:00 (Tue)

New Holly (South Beacon Hill) - 3:00-4:30 and 4:40-6:10

Summer tutors help facilitate small groups in reading, math games, and science enrichment activities. No experience is necessary to be a tutor, we give you all the tools you need to be successful!

Volunteers are requested to help 1.5 hours per week, and be at least 14 years of age. Learn how you can volunteer with YTP by going to http://www.ccsww.org/ytp.
