Volunteers are the life source of the Senior Center
We depend on our volunteers daily and appreciate them dearly. They are the heart and backbone of the Senior Center. It takes over 200 volunteers to run all of our programs, events, and activities. Whether you can commit to ongoing weekly shifts or prefer something more flexible, we will have many opportunities to choose from.
We currently have a need for Volunteers in the Café, Kitchen and for Technical Assistants.

Join our Membership Ambassador Committee. This fun group connects with new members to help them feel welcome and engaged and calls our lapsed or soon-to-be-lapsed members to invite them to renew their membership. We’ll provide all the training you need.

Visit & Assist Seniors in West Seattle Through Our Westside Friends Outreach Program
Would you like to support an elder in West Seattle and make a new friend?
The Senior Center’s Westside Friends (WSF) program matches caring volunteers with West Seattle elders in need of companionship. Volunteers may make a friendly visit or phone call, help with projects, take walks, or drive to the store or an appointment. Our WSF volunteers often create lasting relationships with their senior friends.
Social distancing is observed as appropriate and hours are flexible.
Please complete our online application.

A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty.
