Volunteer Opportunities

Mayor Harrell, local leaders, and residents of Seattle will join together for the 3rd Annual One Seattle Day of Service on Saturday May 18, 2024.

Joining together a diverse group of public, private, and non-profit partners and community organizations, we will provide a wide array of service opportunities including cleaning and beautification, gardening and restoration, helping neighbors in need, and more.

Registration is now open for volunteer shifts at events throughout Seattle. Many events are open to all ages and all abilities, and more will be added up until the Day of Service.
