Academic Achievement

Making sure Seattle’s youth succeed in school is one of our highest priorities. We approach academic achievement from many angles, providing after-school services, employment training, services for at-risk kids and families, and summer school enrichment classes.

Our programs support school and life success, strengthen social skills, help students gain valuable work experience, and prepare them for college.

Low-income youth and youth of color receive high priority for services and programs, which are offered throughout the city by our many nonprofit partners.
