Reading

The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) is an after-school educational enrichment program for vulnerable first through twelfth-grade students who live in 5 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.

Volunteers are the heart of our program.

Help tackle educational inequity by becoming a tutor - no experience necessary! The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) addresses the disparate outcomes in education for students in communities impacted by poverty, systemic racism, and insufficient opportunity.

We support families and students from low-income housing, people of color, and immigrant communities who build confidence and skills in their learning through tutoring. Our volunteer tutor 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.

Our program depends on volunteer tutors - could you join our tutoring program and help enrich the education of young people in Seattle?

YTP welcomes everyone who wants to help, and we particularly encourage members of the Black community and other people of color to become tutors. We are in need of tutoring volunteers throughout the school year, and during the summer.

Tutoring is currently taking place in-person.
