Seattle Works Programs

Looking to build your connection to the Seattle community? Want to learn more about how we care for our community as a city and neighbors? Our programs make it easy for your to plug in and learn about Seattle. Meet your neighbors while gaining valuable experience and learning more about the amazing work of local nonprofits!

At Seattle Works we strive to build a diverse and welcoming community through focus on equity in all aspects of our work. As part of this work, we expect and encourage our partners to work with us to make sure volunteering is accessible and welcoming for everyone. To learn more about our goals, please visit our Equity page. If you have experienced harassment, micro- aggressions, racial discrimination or other racial misconduct at a Seattle Works event, please hold us accountable via our Racial Grievance Reporting Form.


Want to learn more about our community and our neighbors? Our Volunteer Calendar
showcases one-time, weekend, or weeknight volunteer opportunities hosted by nonprofits across the city. This is your one-stop shop for projects including habitat restoration, meal preparation, painting, and more!


Join a team and volunteer together! For one Saturday a month,
visit a different nonprofit, learn about their work and support their mission, then hang out with your team to celebrate a job well done. *Team Works will start up again in Spring 2020.*


Whether you’re looking for a teambuilding opportunity
or want to put your company’s unique skills to work in the community; we can organize customized volunteer projects to fit your needs, while meeting the needs of local nonprofits.


The Bridge: Board Training is a one-day event designed 
to demystify board service by providing participants with the tools and knowledge to be an effective board member. Learn from experts in the local nonprofit sector, meet other emerging leaders, and practice the skills used on nonprofit and public boards. 


Looking to commit to something more than a done-in-a-day
project? Check out the latest longer-term opportunities from our nonprofit partners.


Join us for a huge day of service and a super fun all-ages After Party! Sign up with a team of friends, co-workers, neighbors, or family and we'll connect you with a nonprofit that needs help. Volunteer from 12-3:30 and then join us all at an after-party for a few hours of food, beverage, and networking on Seattle Works!

If you are having trouble plugging into a volunteer opportunity or if you just can't seem to find the right fit, email us at for help.
