Description

The Youth Tutoring Program (YTP) is an after-school educational enrichment program for at-risk, predominately immigrant and refugee students grades 1st-12th who live in six low- and mixed-income housing communities in Seattle. Begun in 1991 as a partnership with the Seattle Housing Authority, the tutoring centers provide youth with a safe, positive, and stimulating environment to explore learning and experience academic and personal success. We work within the communities we serve, offering tutoring through community volunteers, connecting with schools and parents. 

 

There are two vacancies currently: The High Point Tutoring Center in West Seattle and the Jackson Park Tutoring Center in Lake City (North Seattle).

 

Our ideal candidate is someone who values educational success as a vehicle for change. We seek an individual who has experience educating youth, someone who seeks not to be a teacher, but to be a center leader and educational advocate. This position offers the opportunity to support and train volunteers tutors who work directly with our youth while also working directly with youth during sessions. We are looking for someone who is a fantastic multi-tasker, who can comfortably manage the main components of this position: Managing the tutoring center 3 hours daily, connecting with and supporting parents, monitoring student progress and strategizing/seeking guidance from school day teachers, participating in community wide initiatives to improve student’s educational outcomes, and supporting tutors as they build strong mentor/tutor relationships with their students.
