Camp Promise-West is looking for volunteers this summer

Do you still need something fun to do this summer? Are you energetic, creative, and enthusiastic? Do you like working with youth and being a part of a FUN team? Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field or working with people with special health care needs??

If YES, then Camp Promise-West is looking for YOU!

We are currently recruiting volunteers who are mature and responsible individuals, who like working hard and who are willing to learn. Camp Promise-West is a 1-week overnight camp for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy and select neuromuscular diseases, and we believe all kids should get to experience the magic of camp, regardless of their medical needs or physical abilities. Our schedule is jam packed with theme days, pranks, costumes, summer fun, and activities that are 100% wheelchair accessible. We provide camp and medical care free of charge to our campers and highly value our volunteers who help make this happen.

Available positions include:

1) 1) One-on-one counselors to provide friendship, assistance and personal care to campers.

2) Program staff (photographers, yearbook editors, sports, drama, music, etc)

3) Medical staff (nurses, doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, etc)

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are dedicated to giving back to their community, or those who are interested in a career in the healthcare field and who are looking for experience working one-on-one with individuals with special health care needs. Many (but not ALL!) of our volunteers are pre-health students (medicine, nursing, PT/OT, etc) or interested in social work or counseling, or grad students/professionals in these fields. While, helpful, experience is not required as we provide all necessary training at our Orientation session prior to camper arrival.

Our volunteers are of all ages, come from diverse backgrounds and from all over the country, so whatever your skills may be, if you are committed to making camp the best week of our campers’ year, we’d love to hear from you!

One Night Count Youth Survey needs volunteers

Count Us In is our community’s count of homeless and unstably housed young people ages 12-25. In 2014, 779 homeless and unstably housed young people were counted at over 45 partner locations across King County. Count Us In provides supplemental data to King County’s One Night Count, a point-in-time count for homeless people all across the county. Though the One Night Count is one of the best-established in the nation, it isn’t set up to have detailed demographics. Often times, when volunteers are counting homeless people in parks, under bridges, or in doorways, it is difficult to determine sex, race, or age. As a result, the number of homeless youth counted in the One Night Count is underrepresented. Count Us In provides richer data and increased awareness around the homeless youth population. This volunteer will conduct the count at different branches of the Seattle Public Library.

You can help! We need volunteers comfortable talking to youth in transition and approaching strangers!Volunteers commit to one 2 to 4-hour shift on January 22nd, 2015. Volunteers are also required to complete a training component (one hour) covering how to conduct the survey.

This is a great opportunity for those to get involved who are not able to participate in the One Night Count.

There is a training to complete before January 22nd, the information about the training dates and times are listed in the link below.

Thank you and we look forward to you signing up!

Volunteer scheduling is flexible. Go on-line and sign up for a shift(s) that fits your schedule. Shifts are 2-3 hours. Steps to volunteering: 1.
