Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities



See the time-sensitive opportunities offered especially for Shoreline students. 

The Center for Service-Learning develops relationships between Shoreline Community College and non-profit organizations in the community that rely on volunteers to run their programs. By connecting students with these organizations, we're creating a reciprocal relationship: organizations receive essential support for their services and students gain professional experience and hands-on education.
