Youth Tutoring Program (CCSWW)



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?

YTP welcomes everyone who wants to help and we particularly encourage members of the Black community and people of color to become tutors.

What you need to know:
- You will receive all the training and resources you need
- Required commitment of one hour per week 
- We serve six communities where we have tutoring centers

High Point, West Seattle
Jackson Park, Lake City
Lake Washington Apartments, Rainier Beach
New Holly, South Beacon Hill
Rainier Vista, Rainier Valley/Columbia City
Yesler Terrace, First Hill

Tutoring is taking place in-person at the centers listed above.

We asked our volunteers what they enjoy most about tutoring with YTP:
“The students are amazing and I learn something new from them every session”

“Getting to know the kids... They teach me a lot about their culture and how to be better at teaching and are just fun to hang out with”
