Commonly Asked Questions

Can I do my Service-Learning or school-based internship with Real Change?
Yes! We offer service learning opportunities and several unpaid internships each school term. Internships include positions in our Editorial, Vendor Services and Development departments.  Several service-learning positions are also available each quarter/semester and typically consist of small projects for Development, Advocacy, and Vendor Services or data entry.

Can we volunteer as a group?
Yes! We periodically are able to facilitate high impact one-time projects for larger groups. Please contact our Volunteer Manager to see if there is a current need for a group project. We generally are not able to accommodate groups larger than 25 people, and weekend projects.

I am under 18. Can I volunteer?
Yes, however direct service with our Vendors is limited to volunteers who are 18 or older. We request that teenagers be 16 years old to volunteer without parents/guardians. We encourage arts and newspaper contributors of all ages to volunteer with the newsroom. Some events are open to volunteers of all ages with parental support and supervision.

Can I volunteer with Real Change to fulfill my court-ordered community service requirements?
Yes! We accept all court-ordered community service, including Seattle Municipal Court.
