Volunteers are the life source of the Senior Center.

The Senior Center is open with limited programming, and we have occasional needs for new volunteers onsite. If you interested in volunteering, please complete an application here. If you have questions, please contact the SCWS volunteer coordinator.

We are currently accepting volunteer applications for our Westside Friends program, which matches volunteers with our participants in the community, to provide social-distancing support while they shelter in place.

A heart made of words expressing thanks to volunteers of West Seattle Senior Center.

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.
– G. Thomas Gale

 

Once the Senior Center Reopens, Volunteers are Our Lifeblood!

We depend on our volunteers daily and appreciate them dearly. They are the heart and backbone of the Senior Center, and when we’re fully open, 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.
