About United Way of King County Volunteer Center

Strengthening Nonprofits, Supporting Volunteers

United Way of King County’s Volunteer Center strengthens volunteer engagement in organizations and connects people to volunteer opportunities. We do this through the following programs:

VOLUNTEER SOURCING (https://www.uwkc.org/volunteer/)
The most comprehensive listing of volunteer opportunities in King County, the Volunteer Center website connects a variety of volunteers, including youth, with nonprofit organizations.

VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT TRAINING (http://www.uwkc.org/partner-with-us/nonprofits/trainings/)
Training for Volunteer Managers – Both 101 and advanced level topics throughout the year for those who engage volunteers.
    
BOARD LEADERSIHP TRAINING FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR (https://www.uwkc.org/volunteer/project-lead/)
Project LEAD is an annual leadership program for people of color, which provides skills for effective membership on nonprofit boards and connects graduates with local community organizations.

GROUP PROJECTS
United Way frequently gets requests from companies and others for group projects – and increasingly for activities they can do at their worksite. If your organization can host large groups on or off site, please let us know and we can try to connect you to a group. Contact us at volunteers@uwkc.org.
