About Seattle Works 

Mission & Organizational Statement

Connect volunteers, develop leaders, build community.

We are a welcoming civic organization where people connect to causes and to each other through a wide range of volunteer service, leadership training, and meet-up experiences. We lead educational cohorts to support people in their anti-racism work, lead board trainings, connect volunteers with nonprofit partners, and facilitate community affinity groups. We center authentic relationships to foster a healthy community and an enduring culture of belonging for all – which is only possible through listening and evolving as we continue our journey of dismantling racism and decolonizing our workplace. Since 1989, alongside thousands of fellow community members, we continue to inspire local accountability, address community challenges, and hold restorative spaces to further connect our city.
