Volunteer

Back to Work Boutique

We are looking for volunteers at our Back to Work Boutique, a program that helps low-income women find professional clothing for interviews and new jobs.

Back to Work Boutique volunteers are trained to sort clothing and act as fashion consultants.  Time commitment and days can vary, but we are looking for someone who can commit to at least one morning, afternoon, or evening per week.

Ideal candidates have excellent interpersonal skills, patience, sensitivity, and the ability to work with women from a variety of backgrounds.

If you are interested or would like more information, please contact the YWCA at (360) 734-4820 or info@ywcabellingham.org.  You can stop by the YWCA office to fill out a volunteer application or download the YWCA Volunteer Application pdf.

Board of Directors

YWCA Bellingham Board members are needed to provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance.  If your values include empowering women and eliminating racism, this is an extraordinary opportunity for you. 

The YWCA has the only transitional housing program available for single women in Whatcom County, providing them with a safe and supportive place to stay while connecting them with the appropriate resources to get their lives back on track and become self-supporting.  If you are interested in learning more, contact us at 360-734-4820 or ywca@ywcabellingham.org
