Help Out

Communities In Schools of Federal Way is a great way for YOU to invest, through direct action, in the future of young people and the future of your community. Often all it takes is one hour a week.

You can help in the following ways:

Change a young life for the better – volunteer to be a mentor!

The single most important factor in whether a child makes it or not is the involvement of a caring adult. You can be that caring adult. We’re experts at recruiting, training and organizing mentors.  Fill out the volunteer interest form and we will contact you about getting started!

Fund an organization that works.

We help thousands of young people realize their potential, but many more need our services. Help us expand our reach and deepen our level of support. For every dollar you donate, $11.60 is returned to the community!

Be a Leader in Your Community – Volunteer to be on a committee or on the Board of Directors!

We are lucky to have the leadership and support many generous individuals who donate their time as Board of Directors and Committee members.  If you have talent or interest in any of the following areas and want to volunteer your time, fill out the volunteer interest form and we’ll contact you about the process!

Committees include Marketing/PR, Events, Finance, Fundraising and Education.
