Volunteer Committees

United Way has multiple volunteer committees to ensure diversity of expertise and perspectives lead and drive decisions to improve people’s lives in Snohomish County. Serving on one of our committees adds community voices to the table to help lead the way toward the best outcomes for families. Consider joining one of the committees below to engage in rich discussions, network with other like-minded community members, and give back with your time and skills. Or if a committee isn’t for you, refer a family member or friend!
