It is said, the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. As a TAF volunteer, you have the ability to make real connections to our students and teachers. With your help, we can get that much closer to educational equity, by providing the support needed to connect students with industry experiences and STEM skills. So, whether you’re looking for one-time or ongoing volunteer opportunities, know that your invested time is making Washington’s education a place where everyone wins.
Find Your Fit.
Flexible, one-time, and ongoing volunteer opportunities, for you.
Virtual Guest Speaker
Are you willing to share your knowledge and career experience with students? Do you have an interesting story about the lessons you’ve learned while building your career and want to share helpful tips with the younger generation? As a guest speaker, students can learn valuable information about careers that will help shape their futures. You can be the person that inspires them!
Virtual Field Trip Host
Help us bring exciting opportunities to our students by bringing field trips and corporate site visits to them! One of the ways we like to inspire our students and tie the real-world into their learning is by exposing them to new environments and immersing students in corporate culture. Our hope is that they are able to understand the breadth of opportunities available to them and be knowledgeable about what it takes to achieve their dreams. If you or your company is interested in hosting a site visit, we encourage you to apply.
College Tour Connections
Do you have connections to a college or university that would allow TAF students to tour campuses in a unique and exciting way? If so, we need you! We’re always looking for opportunities to expose our students to higher education in a way that would allow them to picture themselves being part of the student community.
Help us transform learning by working with and building authentic relationships with TAF@Washington Middle School students, teachers, and families. We are seeking volunteers to offer a multitude of pathways for our students to learn from and alongside contemporary, innovative leaders in the fields of technology, healthcare, community, social services, business, visual and performing arts, and communications. Through a comprehensive, living teaching tool, students will learn about the leader, what they do, how they solve problems, and then imagine themselves in their role through interactive dialogue. With the help of their teacher, students will identify who they would like to work with as they complete thematic units and/or project cycles that culminate in an authentic community reveal.
During the school year, we have multiple opportunities for volunteers to mentor students through college and career decisions and projects including Senior Projects, the annual STEM Expo, and quarterly exhibitions. At the elementary level, students also participate in quarterly exhibitions and could benefit from volunteers helping by providing project direction and support.
Are you interested in developing a program or workshop in partnership with TAF to provide students with opportunities to increase their knowledge in STEM and life skills. TAF provides students with workshops in financial literacy, resume building, interviewing, and web development to prepare students for the future. Additionally, we work to partner with companies to provide hackathons and other exciting program opportunities to extend student learning beyond the classroom.
TAF continues to grow to serve more students and teachers. If you’re interested in providing consulting services to improve our internal processes, marketing and communications efforts, data analysis, etc., apply below!
UI/UX or Web Development Services
Would you like to help us improve our website and user experience? Do you have experience organizing the most important information in order to help visitors navigate websites? We would love your help!
Have a question? Please direct all volunteer inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I see one light up with curiosity, grab hold of an idea or concept, or find their own personal purpose in specific learning, I just want to feed a fire until that self-motivation keeps on going right by me.
Joy, TAF Volunteer
