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.

Volunteer Tutoring

Our tutoring program matches volunteers with students to provide one-on-one academic support. Tutoring is primarily virtual, using video conferencing software: some tutors may meet with students in-person.

Students request volunteers to help with homework, credit recovery support, senior projects and more. Tutors work in coordination with their assigned student and Treehouse education staff.

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 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.
