Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to help others. It has a positive effect on your community and it’s good for you too. Many students volunteer at North Seattle College because:

  • It’s fun!
  • You meet new and interesting people
  • You feel part of the community
  • You gain valuable life experiences and skills
  • It shows colleges and universities that you’re committed
  • It looks great on your resume and will help you when transferring to a four-year university and when applying for scholarships
  • You can make a difference

BEFORE YOU VOLUNTEER

To get the most out of your volunteer experience, ask yourself these questions before committing to an organization.

  • How much time do I have to commit?
  • What have I done in the past that I’ve enjoyed?
  • What do I want to do as a volunteer – and what would I rule out doing?
  • What talent or skills can I offer?
  • What kinds of people do I want to work with?
  • What would I like to learn from volunteering?
