What to Expect For Volunteer Groups


Groups and children under 18

We have a number of opportunities for groups to volunteer at our sites in White Center and the Central District. We work with church groups, corporate groups, schools and more. Find out why volunteering your group with WestSide Baby is the right thing for you.

Group opportunities are limited and will be scheduled as available. All children under 18 must arrive with a WestSide Baby Minor Volunteer Parent/Guardian Consent form, and children between the ages of 8 and 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
