Somali Kids Tutoring Service (SKTS) is a private non-profit tutoring, basic computer learning, and youth soccer organization in Seattle, Washington. We provide free services to Somali bilingual students and adults, because many Somali children did not have a schooling opportunity before coming to the USA.
