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.

 

"Being part of such a warm community and working alongside such an intelligent and friendly staff is what made my experience so wonderful...I have volunteered at a lot of places, but I have never had such a personalized position or been at an organization where I am really treated as one of the team and an important, contributing member."
—Natalie Westberg, Feet First Volunteer Intern, 2013

Hour Reporting

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 2100 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. Thanks!
