Last year 3,664 volunteers donated 62,398 hours to help people in need. Please join us!

Ready to Volunteer? Here's How:

  • Create an online volunteer profile, pass a background check and review volunteer opportunities: Here.
  • Register for the required volunteer orientation session (once the background check has been cleared, you will receive the link to sign up.)
  • Age requirements:
    Adult guardian/chaperone(s) are required for volunteers ages 15 and under. At least two adults must volunteer with every group regardless of the size of the group. For larger groups, there must be at least one adult guardian/chaperone per every five volunteers ages 15 and under. The minimum age for volunteers is 7. Some jobs may require a minimum age requirement of 16 or 18. Adult guardians/chaperone(s) are expected to act as positive role models and to help their young volunteers participate in a safe and constructive way. Adults are expected to participate fully in the program, demonstrate safety guidelines, work politely with others and provide motivation and encouragement.
  • Community service volunteers who meet all requirements are welcome.
  • Are you part of a group looking for one-time opportunities and special events? Contact the Volunteer Program at 425.897.3721 or ewaesche@hopelink.org.
  • All Hopelink volunteers are placed based on the individual or group’s availability and Hopelink’s needs.



Most of our volunteer opportunities occur Monday – Friday during regular business hours.

Several orientations are offered each month at various Hopelink centers. They are scheduled a month in advance. If the orientation you would like to attend is already full, continue to check back to see the following month’s scheduled orientations.
