The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) is an after-school educational enrichment program for students in 1st through 12th grade who live in six low-income and public housing communities in Seattle. Begun in 1991 as a partnership with the Seattle Housing Authority, the tutoring centers provide youth with a positive learning environment and a tutoring program to help them build academic success. We provide structured tutoring with trained volunteers. We work within the communities we serve, connecting with schools and parents towards the goal of academic success. We are committed to addressing the educational opportunity gaps faced by YTP students. Visit us at www.ccsww.org/ytp for more information about the program.
