If you love to give in the West Seattle Junction, this is the place for you.
Join the growing number of volunteers who are doing good in the Junction neighborhood.
The West Seattle Junction is a thriving community located in the heart of West Seattle. We are seeking ongoing opportunities for volunteers to spend worthwhile time making the Junction a thriving and exciting place to live. Opportunities range from festival support, to Junction ambassadors, to street team, to Junction clean-up.
We also have volunteer opportunities during our many community festivals including: Summer Fest, Harvest Festival, Spring Clean Up, Hometown Holidays, and Art Walk. Photo by Junction volunteer Tami Littlejohn.
Currently we’re accepting volunteers for:
Art Walk, second Thursday of each month. Art Walk Street Team! Guide attendees to art openings and restaurants during art walk night. Stroll the streets handing out maps and helping folks find the event participants. You can also register to distribute posters and maps the beginning of each quarter. New in 2018 be the admin guru and social media expert. You’ll be the Art Walk (with some help from Junction staff of course) by posting the Art Walk across the city calendars and guides.
