The Youth Tutoring Program is an educational enrichment program for youth living in 6 Seattle low-income public housing communities. Since 1991, YTP has provided at-risk elementary, middle, and high school youth with a safe positive and fun place to go where they can get help with their homework, read books, and develop language arts and math skills. The program goals are to: (1) improve students' academic skills (2) increase self-esteem (3) positively impact attitudes about school and learning (4) decrease interest in gangs and drugs and (5) improve school attendance.
