    Tutoring is taking place online using the Zoom platform due to COVID-19. In person opportunities will be available as soon as health and safety permits.

    In person sessions (once health and safety permits) occur in one hour sessions from 4:20PM, with our last session ending at 7:40PM

    Our High Point center in West Seattle historically has a need for support for tutors open to working with a wonderful community of youth from elementary students to high school students.

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

    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 build confidence and skill in their learning through 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?

    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: West Seattle, Lake City, Rainier Beach, First Hill/Yesler Terrace, Rainier Valley, Columbia City!

    Apply now and help students achieve their potential
