Volunteering at Neighborhood House
Thank you for your interest in Neighborhood House. For more than a century, Neighborhood House has been a dynamic advocate in Seattle and King County for immigrants and refugees, low-income families and individuals with nowhere else to turn. Volunteers are an integral part of our agency, contributing their time, talent and energy to help provide a wide range of services.
To create and maintain a safe environment and ensure a successful match between volunteers and their positions, all new Neighborhood House volunteers need to complete the following application process:
1) Complete and submit a Volunteer Enrollment Packet.
To receive a volunteer packet, email email@example.com
This includes consent for a Washington State Patrol Background Check form, which is mandatory for all employees and volunteers.
2) Complete an informal interview with the Volunteer Coordinator and/or Neighborhood House staff supervisor of the volunteer position.
Once all of the materials listed above have been received by the Volunteer Coordinator you will likely be able to start your volunteer experience immediately. For a few positions a second interview may be needed.
3) Attend a general volunteer orientation and program orientation.
This general orientation will include an overview and history of Neighborhood House, as well as policies and procedures of the Volunteer Program. The Volunteer Coordinator will inform you of the schedule. Volunteers are not required to attend an orientation before starting a volunteer position, although we would appreciate every effort to attend the one that falls closest to your start date. The Program Orienation will be provided by your program supervisor.
Again, thank you for your interest in Neighborhood House. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Courtney Jacob, Volunteer Coordinator, at 206-461-8430 ext. 255 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We look forward to meeting you.
