Do More With Seattle Works!
Seattle Works is happy to help nonprofits, schools, community groups, religious, civic, and government organizations find volunteers for their events and activities. We are unable to send volunteers to events managed by for-profit companies.
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- agressions, racial descrimination or other racial misconduct at a Seattle Works event, please hold us accountable via our Racial Grievance Reporting Form.
Board Training and Matching
BRIDGE BOARD TRAINING
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. This training focuses on board basics, as well as diversifying board leadership. Invite your board to attend, or work with us to recruit new board members from our great group of Bridge: Board Training graduates!
Post your board openings on our Find A Board page for us to share with our trained Bridge grads. $25 for 4 months. Find out more here.
BOARD NETWORKING HAPPY HOUR
Once a year Seattle Works, Leadership Tomorrow, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ArtsFund, and United Way of King County present Board Networking Happy Hour! Each year, our programs train hundreds of individuals in the essentials of nonprofit and public board service. We can help your organization connect with these talented, enthusiastic volunteers and spread the word about your current board openings. Registration will open in Fall 2019. Invited organizations will be asked to pay a $25 registration fee.
Request Seattle Works Volunteers
SUBMIT A PROJECT FOR SEATTLE WORKS DAY
June 8, 2019 is Seattle Works Day! We send over 1000 people to 50+ sites in Seattle and then we all get together for good food and good drink at Pyramid Ale House for the after-party.
GET ON OUR VOLUNTEER CALENDAR
Our Volunteer Calendar recruits volunteers for a variety of projects. Please submit 3-4 weeks prior to a project. Submitting an application is not a guarantee that your project will be scheduled. Unfortunately, we cannot recruit volunteers for auctions or fundraising events. Find out more here.
REQUEST A VOLUNTEER TEAM
Our Team Works teams volunteer together one Saturday a month for four months with a dedicated Team Captain. We accept project applications for Team Works before each round, in August and January. We will re-open the submission form before the next round here.
LONG TERM VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
While our programs build community through team-based volunteering, we also recognize that our partner organizations often have a need for longer-term, individual volunteers. Our Ongoing Opportunity page is the best place to recruit for these committed volunteers. To request volunteers, please visit our Request Volunteers page.
We help connect companies who want to make a difference with nonprofits that want to complete big projects! Materials used in Corporate Partnership projects are paid for by the company, so not only is there a grant of person-power to help get things done, but also a grant of materials. Let us know what projects you are dreaming of so we can make a partner match! Email us.
