Volunteering & COVID-19

In response to the arrival of COVID-19 in our community, and in an effort to reduce transmission of the Coronavirus, Hopelink has temporarily closed public access to all Centers, a closure which extends to volunteers. At this time we are asking all volunteers to stay home. We appreciate your commitment to this community and we can’t wait to work with you again once the public health crisis has abated. Meanwhile, if you want to help Hopelink during this challenging time, click here.

Last year, 4,034 volunteers donated 63,037 hours to help our community. Please join us!

Ready to Volunteer? Here's How:


Individual Volunteering

  • Fill out our online volunteer application, once we have processed your background check we will invite you to attend a volunteer orientation. Please allow for up to three weeks to process your application.
  • Register for the required volunteer orientation session (once the background check has been completed, you will be invited to orientation).

Age requirements: Adult guardian/chaperone(s) are required for volunteers ages 7-15. The minimum age to volunteer is 7 years old and some jobs may require volunteers to be at least 16 or 18.

Please contact the Volunteer Program with any questions regarding individual or community service volunteering, volunteerwithus@hopelink.org or (425)869-6066.

Community Service Volunteering

  • Community service volunteers who meet all requirements are welcome.
  • Please note, community service volunteers must commit to a minimum of 20 hours (even if the court mandate or school requirement is less) and should have at least 3 months before your hours are due.  Hopelink will not provide confirmation of volunteer service until you have completed at least 20 hours of volunteering.  A letter informing schools and courts that you are in the process of completing your hours is available.

Group Volunteering

  • Are you part of a group (5-20 volunteers) looking for one-time opportunities? Please contact us for more information, mfinch@hopelink.org or (425)869-2440.
  • Age requirements:
  • All groups with volunteers 15 and under must have at least two adults with them, regardless of their size. The minimum age to volunteer is 7 years old.


Most of our volunteer opportunities occur Monday – Friday during regular business hours.

All Hopelink volunteers are placed based on the individual or group's availability and Hopelink's needs.
