Current Newcastle Volunteer Opportunities
Posted on 08/02/2018

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.

Each month, the Newcastle Community Activities Commission will highlight a few volunteer opportunities on the city's website, social media accounts and email newsletter. If your organization is interested in sharing volunteer opportunities with the community in upcoming posts, contact Commissioner Patti Magers at pattim@newcastlewa.gov.
