Volunteers are an integral part of the Growing Alliance team. Our volunteers are a valuable resource and work diligently together with staff for the betterment of their community and themselves. Growing Alliances strives for a “win/win” situation, where all volunteers realize their donated time and energy are meaningful for themselves as well as for the organization. 

Interested in volunteering? Please follow these steps…

  • Familiarize yourself with our volunteer opportunities

  • Complete an interview with the Volunteer Manager or Program staff
  • Provide signed agreement to adhere to Growing Alliances Volunteer Policies and Procedures

  • Background check may be required

Donation Associate

Time Commitment: 1-4 hours/week

  • Would you enjoy the challenge and excitement of tracking down donations? We are looking for donations for our September fundraiser and from our Wish List.

Garden Maintenance

Time Commitment: 1-2 hours/week

  • Want to get your hands dirty for a good cause? Our Garden Crew works weekly in the garden but some tasks should be done daily. Especially during the hot months, we look for volunteers to water and weed the garden on our off-days.

Event Volunteer

  • Are you unable to commit weekly but would still like to volunteer? Sign up to be a Event Volunteer and we will inform you when we have events a few times a year.

    • We are currently planning four events in the next six months for which we’ll need volunteers.

Board of Directors

Time Commitment: 5 hours a month

  • Bi-monthly meetings

  • We are specifically looking for a Treasurer to present financial reports to the Board of Directors with the assistance of the Executive Director

We regularly post specialty volunteer descriptions, which you can find on our Whatcom Volunteer Center page.
