Join our volunteer team to ensure all communities in Washington are walkable.
Feet First is a small nonprofit and every volunteer makes a big impact on the work we do—volunteers and interns work side by side with staff, board, and committee members to manage projects and events.
There is a lot of room for leadership, initiative, and making change; steps taken by our volunteers and interns often leave a lasting and meaningful mark.
"As an event coordination intern, I had a really great time and had great opportunities. The people at Feet First have a passion for making communities walkable, and I was impressed with that. I am headed back to my home country, but I would like to come back to Seattle in a few years, and look forward to see how the city has changed."

For current volunteers: please log all your hours spent volunteering by submitting them here (this helps the grants team, as many grantors ask how much time our volunteers donate.)
Last year over 2,100 hours were logged, which is impressive, but we suspect the actual number may be higher than that. Help us win grants for Feet First projects by logging all of your volunteer hours.
