Renton Day of Service volunteers at RAYS

Volunteers have a tremendous impact on our ability to provide needed services to our community’s youth and their families. Volunteers help us in a variety of ways, from offering professional guidance and administrative support to serving hot meals at our annual Holiday Festival, they keep our building and grounds looking their best and even sit behind our front desk and answer the phones. RAYS serves infants, children and youth of all ages and of many racial and ethnic backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations and religious beliefs. Our volunteers that reflect and respect that diversity.


Ways to help

Individual: Your time and skills provide significant support ensuring all families have the tools they need to have happy and healthy lives. We are always looking for volunteer with IT, organization, Human Resources, and even landscaping skills to share. Do you have a professional skill to share? Let us know at volunteer@rays.org.

Group: Families & friends, neighbors, schools, colleagues and church groups have all joined together to lend a hand. It’s a great bonding experience and a huge help to RAYS and the families we serve. Throughout the year we have scheduled group projects that your group can sign-up for. We participate in United Ways’ Day of Caring, The City of Renton’s Day of Service and other organized service days. Please check back for our upcoming volunteer project needs.

Due to the sensitive nature of our work, we ask that all of our volunteers complete volunteer application and consent to a background check. We hope you understand that the safety and privacy of our clients is our highest priority but we also don’t want to eliminate our community members from volunteering with us. To learn more about the simple screening process and who can volunteer with us, please see our Background check policy 2015. If you have any questions about volunteering please email volunteer@rays.org.
