Current Newcastle Volunteer Opportunities
Posted on 06/13/2019

Volunteering is a great way to have fun, give back, and learn more about your community. The City of Newcastle recognizes the importance of volunteerism and the significant role it plays in providing a richer quality of life for the Newcastle community. Newcastle has volunteer opportunities available for groups and individuals of diverse talents, ages, and interests.

As the summer season approaches, we’re looking for plenty of volunteers to help ensure our community events run smoothly! Explore the current volunteer needs below and contact Community Activities Commissioner Patti Magers at pattim@newcastlewa.gov to get involved!
