Help tackle educational inequality by becoming a tutor - no experience necessary! YTP recognizes there are disparate impacts in education for young folks and communities impacted by poverty, systemic racism, and educational inequity.
We support families and students from low-income housing, people of color, and immigrant communities grow confidence in their academic learning environments through 1:1 tutoring. Our volunteering program offers one-to-one tutoring and personalized tutoring plans. Our goal is for students to have a welcoming space, to be supported after school, entirely free of charge.
The program depends on volunteer tutors - could you join our tutoring program and help enrich the education of young people in Seattle?

The Youth Tutoring Program's mission is to tutor, guide, and inspire at-risk youth living in low-income and public housing to achieve academic success.
The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) is an after-school educational enrichment program for vulnerable first through twelfth-grade students who live in six low- and mixed-income housing communities in Seattle. Started as a partnership with the Seattle Housing Authority in 1991, the tutoring centers provide youth with a safe, positive, and stimulating environment to explore learning and experience academic and personal success.
