Thank you for your interest in volunteering through Seattle Works! We are closing down the Volunteer Calendar and other volunteer opportunity postings and are no longer accepting registrations for our volunteer portal.

If you are interested in volunteering, we encourage you to look for opportunities through United Way King County.

Here’s some further information as to why we are discontinuing the Partner Portal and it’s related services.

Why close the Partner Portal?

The Partner Portal houses our Volunteer Calendar, Ongoing Opportunities, and Board Postings. While we shifted the Partner Portal to include the non-profit criteria—to ensure that our nonprofit partners are doing their own work to go deeper on their own anti-racism and anti-oppression journeys—we no longer feel that the Partner Portal aligns with our current programming suite and strategic goals.

Over the past two years, Seattle Works has shifted our programs to fulfill our strategic goals of incorporating anti-racism and anti-oppression education into all of our programs. During this time, we realized that all too often, volunteerism is set up to create transactional interactions that are temporary –instead of long-term trust building that’s relational and generative. We moved away from our big volunteer event (Seattle Works Day) and moved away from hosting corporate volunteer projects. If you’d like to learn more about the journey that we’ve been on feel free to check this out.

We hope that you’ll plug into the Seattle Works community through our other program offerings!

  • BIPOC Link-Up: focuses on topics that promote positive well-being for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) to connect, build community, share resources, discuss racial equity, promote healing, & make an impact.
  • White Caucus: white caucus is for white people to take part in anti-oppression work in a way that’s useful rather than destructive or distracting. We caucus to process feelings, retrain ourselves, and take action to dismantle racism and shift power to people who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC).
  • Bridge Board training: designed to demystify board service. Each workshop in The Bridge: Board Training lets individuals practice new and useful skills and build a sense of community responsibility with a network of peers. 
  • Agents of Change cohort: cohort-based program covering topics that range from implicit bias, the non-profit industrial complex, to volunteer engagement with an anti-racist lens. Sessions will include team building, in-depth discussions, and interactive activities on unlearning norms and practices rooted in white supremacy within the non-profit sector. The program will be facilitated by Seattle Works staff as well as guest speakers.
