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 events including box stuffing for Harvest Festival, Spring Clean Up, box stuffing for Hometown Holidays, and Art Walk.
Currently, we’re accepting volunteers for:
Social distancing + volunteering + getting your steps in = Junction social distance cleanup kit.
While the Junction is emptier than usual, take the opportunity to help out by walking around picking up debris! Four kits at a time will be handed out to maintain plenty of distance. Interested in helping out? Email the Junction to schedule the pickup time for your social distance cleanup kit.
Art Walk 2021, 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 at the beginning of each quarter. You’ll be the face of the Art Walk (with some help from Junction staff of course) by posting the Art Walk across the city calendars and guides. Love art and want to spread the word? Sign up to hand out information to businesses and artists on ways to get involved. Sign up here for Art Walk volunteer opportunities all throughout 2021.

The mission of the West Seattle Junction Association is to develop, encourage, promote, and participate in activities that enhance a healthy economic, social, and environmental climate for the West Seattle Junction community.
The West Seattle Junction Association was established as a Business Improvement Area in 1987 to carry out parking, clean up, beautification, and promotional activities in the business district. Our efforts are directed to create a vibrant community business district with a healthy mix of small specialty businesses and smaller retail chains that will attract shoppers for their recreational, dining, and shopping needs. One of the largest community events is the West Seattle Summer Fest, our annual three-day summer street festival.
