After-School Services

The Seattle Human Services Department funds community-based organizations to provide after-school services to about 800 youth per year in safe and welcoming environments. Most participants are ages 10-19 and live in low-income families of color in central, southeast and southwest Seattle neighborhoods.

Funded programs engage Seattle youth with a variety of culturally and age-appropriate activities to help them succeed in school; strengthen their social, academic and leadership skills; and increase ties to their community. Most of these programs help students improve their study skills and preparation for college.

After-school youth services have been supported by the City of Seattle General Fund since 1983. In 2014, approximately $594,605 in local funding is provided to agencies offering after-school youth development and educational support services.
