The City of Kirkland offers one-time (single-day events) and ongoing (weekly or monthly) volunteer opportunities:
One-time: Event volunteering offers the flexibility of single-day commitments and the ability to choose dates. Generally, these single-day projects and events only require a completed one-page City volunteer agreement form.
- All Green Kirkland Partnership Habitat Stewardship volunteer projects are considered "one-time."
- Teen Traffic Court: Green Kirkland events can only verify court-mandated service for Teen Traffic Court and cannot accept other forms of court mandated service.
Ongoing: These assignments require a minimum commitment of six months to one year, with a weekly or monthly shift. Before beginning an ongoing assignment, each volunteer must successfully complete the online Ongoing Volunteer Application, two references, national background check, interview and new volunteer orientation.
- Adult court-mandated community service: Parks Maintenance Assistant is the ONLY volunteer assignment approved for adult court-ordered service, minimum 30 hours required with a completion deadline no sooner than 30 days from today. All ongoing volunteer requirements apply. Plus, background check results are reviewed by the Parks Director for court-mandated service.
