Looking to Make a Difference in Northeast Seattle?

No matter what your interests are or what your schedule is like, you can make a difference with NEST. These fun and rewarding NEST projects will leave you feeling gratified and in tune with your community!

Transportation: Our most requested service, volunteers provide over 100 rides each month to and from doctor’s appointments, classes, grocery stores, and more.

Administrative Volunteer: Work in the NEST office to connect NEST members with our volunteer and vendor networks, and end up connecting meaningfully with members themselves! We are looking for volunteers to come in consistently at the same time each week during regular business hours.

Friendly Visitor: Have flexible daytime hours? Set up a regular visit with a NEST member, play a board game, enjoy lively conversations, and create a lasting friendship with your neighbor.

Group Facilitator: Volunteer facilitators help conversation flow easily and evenly in the group, and work closely with NEST staff to develop topics for discussion.

Project Birthday: These volunteers deliver cupcakes and good cheer to NEST members on their birthdays. Popping by for a quick and festive visit brightens everyone’s day, and usually results in a cute selfie or two!

Household Assistance: Help your neighbors carry out everyday household tasks such as vacuuming, putting away dishes, and raking leaves.

Handyperson: Do you know your way around a hammer? Help out members with minor household repairs such as installing light switches and doorknobs.

Call or email the NEST office at (206) 525-6378 or info@nestseattle.org for more information, or click here to sign up to volunteer with NEST.
