Join us in supporting the East African immigrant and refugee community in Seattle by volunteering with HOAS!

Our current volunteer opportunities:

The number one way to get fully involved in the community is to volunteer as a tutor/mentor at one of our after school programs!

Our after school programs assist students in grades 1 through 12 in improving their academic skills and building ties to their communities. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to mentor students, be a role model, and teach good study habits. 

We have TWO locations where we are running an after school program - at the Rainier Vista Neighborhood House, and at the New Holly Campus. Volunteers to the Rainier Vista Neighborhood House program serve from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, and volunteers at the New Holly Campus program serve from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. 

If you would like to volunteer with us, please complete our volunteer interest form!


If you have questions about volunteer opportunities, please email our volunteer coordinator, 

Volunteers to the after school programs must have graduated high school or have a GED. Volunteers under 18 years old must have a signed permission form from parent/guardian. All volunteers will be required to pass a background check.
