Dedicated volunteers advance our mission every day!
Thank you for considering a volunteer position or internship with Impact NW. We offer a variety of opportunities from one-time only, seasonal projects to on-going commitments. Our goal is to design a volunteer experience that meets your needs and the needs of the organization by following these three guidelines:
- Work towards creating a safety net and springboard for community members to improve their quality of life and achieve independence.
- Nurture the development and education of volunteers/interns.
- Contribute to the overall well-being of those we serve.
All potential volunteers who intend to make an ongoing commitment to Impact NW submit an application.
Potential volunteers participate in an interview with their program supervisor.
If both the potential supervisor and the volunteer feel the position is a good fit, the volunteer signs a position description, and a tentative work schedule is determined for the volunteer.
Background and Reference Check
The Community Involvement Manager conducts a background check for the volunteer and checks two references. Some positions may also require a driving record check and / or fingerprinting.
Orientation & Training
All volunteers receive training for their specific assignment as administered by their immediate supervisor.
Ongoing supervision is provided to the volunteer by their immediate supervisor.
