Student Volunteer Options

    Volunteering is a great way to gain skills, improve college applications, explore career options, and more importantly, support your community. Remember to balance your available time with commitments for school work, family needs, and employment.

    Visit this webpage and Jackson's Career Center (in library) for information about volunteering opportunities. Below are current and past volunteer options:

    • Vegfest on May 2nd and 3rd at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, www.seattlevegfest.org. To volunteer go to Vegfest's Volunteer Page and fill out the volunteer form. You can also call 206-706-2635. After 4 hours volunteering, volunteers will receive a Vegfest 2020 t-shirt, free admission to event, and a whole lot of fun. (Maybe free food?!) Additional information is below:

      Vegfest is coming up on May 2nd & 3rd!   Vegetarians of Washington is a local volunteer-based non-profit organization. We organize the biggest Vegetarian food festival in the country, Vegfest, a healthy vegetarian food festival at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, on Mercer Street.  We’ll be handing out hundreds of free food samples – there’s over 500 different kinds to try.  We will have doctors and dietitians speaking on nutrition topics, chefs cooking demonstrations, authors signing books and a special kids program.  

      To run this event takes hundreds of volunteers, and every year we have many student volunteers helping us. You don’t need to be a vegetarian to volunteer! I would like to invite you to volunteer with us for the weekend, or some portion of it.  It is a great way to help the community learn about healthy eating, and to fulfill any community service requirements you may have.
