Check out our website at www.kidserveseattle.org to learn about many more opportunities for
kids to volunteer! KidServe Seattle is all about connecting kids to the community. Our mission
is to promote volunteerism for children through social, civic and environmental opportunities
within the local community. kidServe Seattle works with Seattle area non-profits and
government agencies to introduce unique volunteer experiences to children ages 5-12 and their
families. Getting actively involved in the Seattle area community allows kids to learn and truly
understand what it means to give back.

Our focus is on matching a child's interest with volunteer experiences by partnering with non-
profit organizations throughout the community that serve five unique areas: animals, arts, social
outreach, environment, and health and wellness. Our non-profit partners will try and fit into one
of the categories and then a tailor-made experience will be listed on our calendar of one-time or
recurring events.

You can reach Rachael Podolsky, Executive Director of kidServe at rhpodo@gmail.com. Please

Harvest Against Hunger
The South King County Food Coalition, Northwest Harvest, the LDS Cannery in Kent and
Rotary First Harvest have partnered to create, "Yes, we CAN!" a community canning
initiative to benefit the food bank clients of South King County! This project is a great way
to engage with the fight against the food insecurity and hunger faced by many of our
neighbors.

Since September we have preserved over 30,000lbs of produce that would have otherwise
gone to waste! That's over 50,000 extra cans of highly nutritious food distributed to the
more than 12,000 families who visit our food banks each month.

We are seeking volunteer groups and individuals (must be 16yrs or older) to help keep this
incredible program running. In May, June and July we will be canning on Thursdays and
Fridays from 9am-4:30pm. We can accommodate groups of up to 25 for the 9-1 shift, up to
15 for the 11:30-3:30 shift and 25 for the 12:30-4:30 shift. Get a team together from your
neighborhood, work, school, club or church and feed the hungry!!

Court ordered community service volunteers welcome.

www.bellevuewa.gov/volunteer

Services: Crisis line is a 24/7 telephone crisis intervention line
operated by volunteers.
Needs: You must be at least 21 years of age to volunteer on the Crisis Line.
Potential volunteers are professionally trained by our clinical staff to
provide immediate and confidential telephone support to people in crisis
situations and to those who are simply emotionally overwhelmed by their
current situation in life. Volunteers serve a four hour shift once per week after completing 56
hours of training. As a volunteer on Crisis Line you are the clinic's
ears and voice in helping people overcome crisis. Our staff of mental
health professionals is there to assist you in doing the work of a
crisis interventionist. You are never alone on the phone. Crisis Clinic
trains new volunteers five times a year.

Crisis Clinic
Teen Link
Services: Teen Link is an arm of the Crisis Clinic which offers an array of support services
available to everyone in King County, Washington.
Needs:
 Outreach Worker (age 13-20) to spread the word about Teen Link by attending events out in
   the community (concerts, fairs, festivals), visiting and learning about other agencies that
   serve youth, making and putting up posters and talking to other teens.
 Teen Link Youth Suicide Speakers Bureau Educator (age 15 and older): YSSB Educators
   help represent the youth voice when Teen Link gives its suicide prevention presentations in
   the schools. Volunteers are trained in issues surrounding youth suicide and are paired with an
   adult trainer. The presentations cover much more than just suicide and are actually fun and
   informative. They also incorporate lots of brainstorming to keep students involved, so it is
   not like a lecture that volunteers will have to memorize.
 Teen Link Phone Worker (age 15-20): Phone Workers are the volunteers who answer the
   phones on the help-line from 6-10pm. They deal with calls ranging from relationships to
   suicide. Learn how to become a really great listener and help other youth through their
   problems. Training is provided.
 Teen Link Peer Advisory Board Member: Peer Advisory Board members make sure that the
   Teen Link program remains youth-driven and attentive to styles, tastes and issues facing
   young adults. They are the voice of the other volunteers in the program and work with staff
   to make many of the major decisions affecting Teen Link and its future.

Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team project, COASST (University of
Washington)
The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team project, COASST:
http://depts.washington.edu/coasst/, is a citizen science project which trains volunteers to look
for beach-cast carcasses of marine birds on a monthly basis to establish the baseline of bird
mortality on local beaches. Anyone can volunteer - you don't necessarily need to be a biologist or
a bird expert, just someone willing to walk about a .75 mile stretch bordering Puget Sound
once/month. It's a fun program and a neat way to contribute to ongoing, local research. We're
especially looking to supplement beaches in South Puget Sound and Hood Canal:

The Great Seven Acre Knotweed Smackdown

 King County, WA. Friends of the Cedar River Watershed is hosting The Great Seven
Acre Knotweed Smackdown! Volunteers will be eradicating invasive knotweed from the
Historic Taylor Townsite in the protected Cedar River Municipal Watershed on Saturday,
June 18th from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Beneath the lush forest lays the remains of old pipes, clay, and coal from the historic
industrial town of Taylor (1892-1947). The famous Taylor bricks made from this town are
found in buildings that still stand today across the west coast. Volunteers will have the rare
opportunity to tour the traces of this ghost town. Unfortunately, noxious knotweed has
infested seven acres of the historic town site. Volunteers will remove this invasive species
in our Great Seven Acre Smackdown event, preparing the area for future habitat
restoration projects and bringing the town of Taylor to pristine condition.

Volunteers interested in organizing a team, participating as an individual for this event, or
for more information, should contact Nisa Karimi at nisa@cedarriver.org.

This project is a collaborative effort thanks to: Friends of the Cedar River Watershed and
Seattle Public Utilities.

non-profit organization inspiring conservation and protection of the Cedar River/ Lake
Washington watershed through restoration, education, and stewardship. The Cedar River

Mayors’ Day of Concern for the Hungry Food Drive
The Emergency Feeding Program of Seattle & King County is recruiting volunteer teams to help
with their annual Mayors’ Day of Concern for the Hungry food drive. Held in September,
Mayors’ Day is an opportunity for your congregation, workplace or youth group to make a real
difference in the lives of hungry families right here in our community. Your team can be the
difference between a family putting food on its table or sending its children to bed hungry.
Volunteer teams commit to staffing a nearby store, handing out flyers at the market’s door asking
that certain nutritional foods be donated. Shoppers then purchase these items, depositing them in
barrels on their way out of the store. EFP provides the flyers, barrel delivery, and donation
pickup. You provide the hearts and hands that will ensure success. For more information, to
register your team, and to reserve the store of your choosing, please contact the Emergency
Feeding Program at 206-329-0300 or visit their website at www.emergencyfeeding.org.

Crisis Clinic
Teen Link
Services: Teen Link is an arm of the Crisis Clinic which offers an array of support services
available to everyone in King County, Washington.
Needs:
 Outreach Worker (age 13-20) to spread the word about Teen Link by attending events out in
   the community (concerts, fairs, festivals), visiting and learning about other agencies that
   serve youth, making and putting up posters and talking to other teens.
 Teen Link Youth Suicide Speakers Bureau Educator (age 15 and older): YSSB Educators
   help represent the youth voice when Teen Link gives its suicide prevention presentations in
   the schools. Volunteers are trained in issues surrounding youth suicide and are paired with an
   adult trainer. The presentations cover much more than just suicide and are actually fun and
   informative. They also incorporate lots of brainstorming to keep students involved, so it is
   not like a lecture that volunteers will have to memorize.
 Teen Link Phone Worker (age 15-20): Phone Workers are the volunteers who answer the
   phones on the help-line from 6-10pm. They deal with calls ranging from relationships to
   suicide. Learn how to become a really great listener and help other youth through their
   problems. Training is provided.

MENTORING

4C Coalition Mentor Program
Services: The 4C Coalition Mentor Program is open to youth who are on probation and have
been assessed as moderate or high risk to re-offend and must be a minimum of four to six months
from completing probation. This program matches youth who are involved in the King County
Superior Court system with positive role models from their community. The mentor helps the
youth realize alternatives to destructive behavior while participating in positive one-on-one
activities. The mentor works with the court and an advocacy team assigned to the youth to help
overcome his or her personal challenges.
Volunteer Needs: Mentors. All volunteers must be 21 and older, attend a 6-hour training
designed to give the mentor information about the program and the youth involved in the
juvenile justice system, consent to a Washington State Patrol background check, make a one (1)
year commitment to a youth and the Mentor Program and meet or make weekly contact with
his/her assigned youth while the young person is in the community. We have a particular need
for more African American male mentors.

Mentoring Children of Promise
As the number of men and women in our prison system grows steadily, another population also
increases in our midst - the innocent children of prisoners. When parents are incarcerated, their
children struggle to find their way, often without the benefit of a stable or consistent adult in
their lives, and that’s where Volunteers of America Mentoring Children of Promise steps in.

Mentoring Children of Promise breaks children out of the potentially dangerous situation by
matching them with adults who serve as mentors. We help strengthen the concept of family,
both for youth and their extended families through mentors that model safe and trusting
relationships, healthy lifestyles and appropriate social behavior. Mentors also encourage
increased participation in community activities and raise the child’s interest in literacy and
academics.

We look at the big picture. Mentoring Children of Promise serves the whole family, including
siblings, the caregiver, and when appropriate, the imprisoned parent. Services are available in
King, Kitsap, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish and Whatcom Counties, and utilize the nationally
known Big Brothers Big Sisters model to match youth to long-term adult volunteers. Our
qualified staff carefully screens, interviews, and matches volunteers with youth, and additionally
offers support to participating families and mentors.

If the opportunity to make an impact is tugging at you, please consider becoming a mentor to a
child in need! All it takes is 8 hours per month of your time, doing activities you love!

   not like a lecture that volunteers will have to memorize.

   phones on the help-line from 6-10pm. They deal with calls ranging from relationships to

who have limited transportation options. Our volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to provide
personalized transportation to medical appointments. The volunteers provide not only a ride, but
escort seniors to and wait with them at their appointments before returning home. They offer the
extras that mean so much to an older adult… holding doors open, lending a steadying arm,
providing companionship and security.
Needs: Friendly, caring volunteers who can drive seniors to their medical appointments during
the week. Drivers use their own vehicles and choose the days and areas in which they wish to
drive. Volunteer drivers are needed on weekdays during business hours throughout King County

Adopt a Family through Overlake Service League

With the holiday season approaching, Overlake Service League will again be coordinating the
Adopt-a-Family Program that matches up community sponsors with families in need in the
Bellevue area for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

We are asking for your participation in providing a happy holiday for families in need. You can
help in several ways:

       You (or your workgroup) can adopt a family for Christmas and shop for food, clothing
        and gifts for a family.
       You (or your workgroup)can purchase a grocery gift card(s), which we will use for our
        families.
       You (or your workgroup) can purchase a certificate(s) for gifts.


The Christmas Adopt-a-Family distribution will take place in December. At this time sponsors
arrive in the morning with grocery gift card for food and wrapped and labeled gifts for each
family member.

Wish lists are provided. We are still in need of many sponsors. We hope you will be part of our
program this year in whatever way you can. Please email us at osl@overlakeserviceleague.org,
and let us know what size family you would like to "adopt", or what you would like to do to
support this program.

Each year we serve almost 2,000 adults and children. It is rewarding to know that so many hearts
are lifted with smiles created through the kindness and unselfish generosity of community
members like you.
