Virtual and Self-Guided Projects

Off-Campus Volunteer Opportunities

Edmonds College has several community partners who we share in mutual support of each other. This page lists off c a.m.pus opportunities to support our partners while earning Service Learning hours. (See our Service Learning page for more details on the benefits of participating in SL during your academic career)  Your free time is precious, but setting aside some time for volunteer opportunities can provide many benefits that make the experience more than worth the effort it takes. Spending time helping others can contribute to a sense of accomplishment or sense of purpose which adds to your overall positive mental state. 

Note: these opportunities are self driven and self transported. No group van transportation provided. Bus information listed for your convenience. 

Additionally, if you have an off c a.m.pus event/organization you think might qualify to post/participate in, please email stewart.sinning@edmonds.edu
