Ready to Volunteer? Here's How:


Individual Volunteering

  • Fill out our online volunteer application, once we have processed your background check we will invite you to attend a volunteer orientation. Please allow for up to three weeks to process your application.
  • Register for the required volunteer orientation session (once the background check has been completed, you will be invited to orientation).

Age requirements: Adult guardian/chaperone(s) are required for volunteers ages 7-15. The minimum age to volunteer is 7 years old and some jobs may require volunteers to be at least 16 or 18.

Please contact the Volunteer Program with any questions regarding individual or community service volunteering, volunteerwithus@hopelink.org or (425)869-6066.

Community Service Volunteering

  • Community service volunteers who meet all requirements are welcome.
  • Please note, community service volunteers must commit to a minimum of 20 hours (even if the court mandate or school requirement is less) and should have at least 3 months before your hours are due.  Hopelink will not provide confirmation of volunteer service until you have completed at least 20 hours of volunteering.  A letter informing schools and courts that you are in the process of completing your hours is available.

Group Volunteering

  • Are you part of a group (5-20 volunteers) looking for one-time opportunities? Please contact us for more information, mfinch@hopelink.org or (425)869-2440.
  • Age requirements:
  • All groups with volunteers 15 and under must have at least two adults with them, regardless of their size. The minimum age to volunteer is 7 years old.


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

All Hopelink volunteers are placed based on the individual or group's availability and Hopelink's needs.
