COVID-19 Updates

We now have one-time and ongoing roles available for individual volunteers in the Treehouse Store. Please see a description of these roles below.

If you are interested in bringing a larger group to volunteer in the Store, please email volunteer@treehouseforkids.org for updated information about the status of our group shifts.

Share Your Time and Talents with Treehouse

Volunteers are a critical part of how Treehouse supports youth in foster care. We welcome groups, individuals and families to join us.

Treehouse’s commitment to diversity and equity is central to our work with youth in foster care, and our volunteers are our partners in this work. Treehouse serves youth and caregivers of many races and ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities and religious beliefs. We seek volunteers who reflect that diversity. We know that everyone is at a different place in their learning about dismantling racism and other forms of oppression, but our expectation is that Treehouse volunteers bring a personal commitment to continued learning and action on these fronts.

Want to join us? Please view our volunteer opportunities below. We look forward to working with you.

Spirit of 12 Seahawks Training Camp Volunteers

We are looking for enthusiastic, outgoing volunteers to sell yearbooks during the Seahawks training camp events at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton and Lumen Field in Seattle. The proceeds from yearbook sales support Treehouse programs for youth in foster care.

Volunteers must be fully vaccinated in order to attend these events.

Volunteers can find more information and sign up here:
Spirit of 12 Seahawks Training Camp Volunteer Signup

Age requirement: this event is suitable for volunteers who are 12+ and have been fully vaccinated. All youth under age 18 must be accompanied by adult chaperones, with a 1:1 ratio of child to adult.

Each volunteer (including youth) must register separately at least two days in advance.

Virtual Volunteer Tutoring

We are continuing to accept applications from interested volunteer tutors through the spring and summer. We anticipate less demand for tutoring during the summer break, so tutors who apply now may be added to a waiting list before being matched with a student in the fall.

Our online tutoring program matches volunteers to work one-on-one with students by providing academic support using video conferencing software. Students request volunteers to help with homework, credit recovery support, senior projects and more. Tutors work in coordination with their assigned student, the student’s Education Specialist and Treehouse’s Academic and Career Volunteer Coordinator.

Volunteer tutors work with students from middle school to college level throughout the state. Most of our requests are from high school students.

It is valuable for youth in foster care to work with volunteers with whom they can identify. Volunteers who are fluent in Spanish/ French/Tigrinya and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

Minimum Age: 18

Location: Statewide (Tutors must be residents of Washington state)

Commitment: Standing weekly or twice-weekly virtual tutoring meeting, with a maximum of 2 hours of tutoring per student each week.

After they are trained and onboarded, volunteers are placed in our pool of tutors to wait for a student who is a good match for their skills and availability. New tutors may find a student match right away, or there may be a waiting period. We ask that new tutors remain available to be matched with students for a full school year.
