Swank is Seattle Works’ annual gala & auction. This year’s event will be held at Fremont Studios on Saturday, October 8th. Seattle Works volunteers usually have their sleeves rolled up, working in the weeds. This is a chance to get dressed up and bump elbows with other young professionals who are also interested in giving back to the community.
One Saturday a month, volunteer with old and new friends
Team Works is a volunteer group that sends volunteers out into the community one Saturday a month for four months, from September to December. Registration for fall session opened earlier this month, on August 17th. Team Works is a social volunteering league that gets you and your friends out into the community giving back and doing good—and yes, you have fun too. Volunteer sessions last from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. You’ll be finished in time to enjoy a late brunch!
Making volunteering fun and accessible for Seattleites.
Seattle is booming. Census data shows that Seattle is one of the fastest growing major American cities with a high concentration of young adults. Millennials make up 1/3 of our population. What will Seattle look like if we don’t value community engagement and volunteerism in this time of growth? How do we get millennials involved in building a thriving community of actively engaged individuals? This is where Seattle Works comes in.
