We provide learning and leadership opportunities that increase the personal, academic, and social skills youth need to be successful in life.


Those taking part become more connected to their communities, do better in school, and are less likely to fall prey to despair, hopelessness, or destructive activities.

After School Program

Our after school program helps youth improve in basic academic skills, while motivating them to do well in school. Classes include one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, and homework help.

Service Learning

We sponsor projects to encourage youth to give back to the community.

This includes:

  • volunteering at homeless shelters
  • creating public art installations
  • community clean-up and beautification projects
  • visiting with the disabled and elderly

Social and Leadership Development

We have structured activities and support groups that develop young people’s social skills, leadership potential, and social responsibility, while promoting a strong anti-violence message.

Other services

Youth and their families are encouraged to participate in other Atlantic Street Center services such as mental health counseling, and family support services.

Who can take part

The Youth Development program is free and available to youth ages 10-24 who live in the City of Seattle.

Schedule of Services

Youth groups generally occur M-F during afterschool hours. Special programs and activities may also occur on the weekend and evenings.
