What We DoA volunteer holds a sign about proper waste diversion, and places a bottle into the correct waste bin.

Snohomish County WSU Extension’s Sustainable Community Steward (SCS) Outreach Program is made up of both SCS and Waste Warrior volunteers. Each of these volunteers craft their own volunteer experience, selecting the activities that match their interests with a schedule that fits into their lives.

Types of volunteer support can include: writing newsletter articles, identifying new project options, researching continuing education opportunities, event coordination, community outreach and education, public speaking, office administration support, and more!

Visit our Sustainable Community Stewards and Waste Warriors Volunteer Program Training webpage to learn more and join us  to be the change you want to see in our community!

Ready to be the change? Contact program coordinator Heather Teegarden!
