The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP), a part of Catholic Community Services, serves students in grades 1 to 12 who live in six public housing communities throughout Seattle. Most students in the program are behind their grade level and need extra support to succeed in school. YTP tutors build up a relationship with students to help them succeed academically and personally.
Volunteers help students develop stronger reading and math skills, and provide homework assistance.
“If you have a desire to serve in a meaningful volunteer position where the impact is immediate and visible, consider joining us as a tutor,” YTP said in a statement.
Tutoring starts on September 15 and runs all school year.
With a few exceptions, the centers are open Monday to Thursday for three sessions each:
• 4:20 p.m. to 5:20 p.m.
• 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
• 6:40 p.m. to 7:40 p.m.
• High Point (West Seattle)
• Jackson Park (Lake City)
• Lake Washington Apartments (Rainier Beach)
• New Holly (South Beacon Hill)
• Rainier Vista (Rainier Valley/Columbia City)
