Mission Statement:

Seattle Education Access provides higher education advocacy and opportunity to people struggling to overcome poverty and adversity.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

SEA fights poverty and homelessness by helping marginalized youth make strong transitions to local community colleges and four year universities. Many of our students have been homeless; others are immigrants, foster youth, or single parents. What they all share in common is a strong motivation to complete their educations, coupled with a lack of adequate resources to achieve their goals. We provide our students with the financial and social resources they need to excel academically, as well as personalized, compassionate, respectful academic advising and advocacy. As a result, our students are succeeding in college and leaving poverty behind, preparing to give back to society as professionals and leaders of the next generation.


We are currently accepting applications for volunteer tutors. Our greatest need is for GED test prep and COMPASS test prep (this is the placement test that students need to take when enrolling at a community college, and similar to the math and English portions of the GED). Tutors work one-on-one with students, meeting at public places such as libraries or community centers. Our greatest need is for tutors who can meet students in South Seattle or South King County. We serve students throughout King County.
