Seattle Works Day | June 6th, 2020
Seattle Works Day 2020 has been canceled.
As the Seattle community does its part to battle the global COVID-19 pandemic, Seattle Works is rapidly adapting our array of core competencies to help meet the challenge. One of these changes includes cancelling our flagship event Seattle Works Day. With so many gathering places closed down and countless everyday activities suspended, our need to find safe ways to connect is more important than ever. To maintain the spirit of Seattle Works Day, we are launching a new program (stay tuned!) that will focus on connecting volunteers to opportunities in the community that arise while adhering to the stay-at-home order.
Right now we are reaching out to our nonprofit partners to assess their current needs and their capacity for volunteer opportunities that are aligned with the stay-at-home order. We are using this form (that takes about 5-10 minutes to complete) to collect those needs. Once we have a better understanding of what and where the need is we will be helping to liason between volunteers and our nonprofits partners.
If you have any questions, concerns and/or ideas to share with the Seattle Works team, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Thank you to our 2020 Seattle Works Day sponsors!
