Centerstone’s Volunteer Program Philosophy

Centerstone’s volunteer program provides rewarding, structured and supportive opportunities to those who desire to help people move out of poverty.  Our program enables people to connect and contribute to the community by fostering mutually beneficial volunteer relationships based on shared expectations.  We are respectful of volunteers’ time and commitment and acknowledge their contributions.

Volunteer with Us

Centerstone recently concluded the United Way of King County-sponsored Volunteer Impact Program. With the help of a team of consultants, we restructured our volunteer program to provide our volunteers with an even more meaningful experience. We are expanding our current volunteer positions so our volunteers can contribute their expertise in a variety of capacities, including tax preparation, photography, social media, translation services, case management, and more. We value our volunteers’ skills and look forward to hearing ideas on how to provide our clients with the very best service.

Current  open volunteer positions:

Food Bank In-Take Specialist, Community Resources Navigator,  Food Bank Assistant

Currently filled or inactive volunteer positions:

Food Bank Home Delivery Assistant, Energy Outreach AssistantCommunity Engagement Intern, Development Intern

If you are interested in one of the currently filled or inactive volunteer positions, please contact Centerstone’s Community Engagement Coordinator to train as a standby volunteer.
