Our Volunteer Philosophy
Volunteers are essential in fulfilling and expanding WithinReach’s mission to make the connections that Washington families need to be healthy. Through our partnership with volunteers we are able to expand and diversify the population we serve. In order to fully appreciate and recognize our volunteers, we are committed to honoring the time our volunteers donate by:
- Providing fun, effective and engaging opportunities to serve the community
- Welcoming volunteers that bring diverse backgrounds and experiences that reflects the diversity found in Washington state
- Providing opportunities for professional and personal growth.
“After 20 years in the nonprofit sector I am convinced that our greatest untapped community resource are volunteers. Volunteers not only build the capacity of our organization to reach more people and have greater impact, it provides an important opportunity for each of us live out our values. I’m proud that WithinReach aligns our community’s interest in giving back with critical organizational work, the result–a healthier, more vital community.”
