Attend an Event


All events have been reassessed due to organizational changes, gathering restrictions, and other impacts of COVID-19.

CORE Perspectives, our annual event which usually takes place in September, was cancelled for 2020 and plans for the event (in-person or virtually) in 2021 is to be determined.

If you are an individual or small group looking for available volunteer opportunities, below are a few local resources:
  1. Engage is a free and reputable online tool where agencies can post volunteer projects and volunteers are able to search for available opportunities.
  2. Companis is a Puget Sound-based organization whose mission is to make our community healthier and safer by fostering skilled volunteer service. Companis is now available in Snohomish County through a partnership with Community Foundation of Snohomish County. 
  3. Volunteers of America Western Washington has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available. 
Below are the virtual events currently available. We will continue to update this page as new opportunities arise.
