Youth Tutoring Program - Catholic Community Services

The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) is an after-school educational enrichment program for first through twelfth-grade students who live in six low-income and public 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 the program. They work with students individually or in pairs to follow each student’s individualized learning plan. We are in need of tutoring volunteers throughout the school year, and during the summer.

At the tutoring centers, students build skills in reading and math, get help with homework, and grow their confidence. There are six YTP tutoring centers located throughout Seattle. Centers are open in the late afternoon and early evening hours. YTP students are wonderfully diverse, representing many nationalities, cultures, languages, and religions.

Our mission is to tutor, guide, and inspire youth living in low-income and public housing to achieve academic success.
