• Volunteer Opportunities

Teach a class. Take a walk with an elder. Organize an event. Opportunities abound to make a difference at Keiro Northwest. Whether you volunteer once for a few hours, or make it a regular event, we promise to welcome your talents with open arms.

making a difference

Our volunteers allow Keiro Northwest to do so much more for the residents and participants than we ever could on our own. They serve in an endless variety of ways but have one trait in common: generosity that comes from a deep, compassionate sense of caring for the residents and participants of our programs.
