Volunteer Opportunities

Sound Generations is grateful for the 1,000+ star volunteers who have contributed both time and service to further our mission of providing a better quality of life to King County’s aging community. Without volunteer support, we would have not been able to provide low-cost and free services to those who needed us most during the global pandemic. Diverse in age, background, skills, and interests – our volunteers share an intergenerational desire to engage with the community & staff, support operations, and address the most urgent needs of aging adults with a smile! 

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for people of all talents, interests, and schedules. Become a volunteer today!
