We Want YOU!

Volunteers at Issaquah Highlands Day Festival

Resident volunteers are one of the things that make Issaquah Highlands a great place to call home. Whether you’re suggesting an idea, leading a community group, or helping at an event, your contribution is valuable, and needed to sustain the participatory culture in our neighborhood. We are actively looking for volunteers for the following three areas:

Cultural Committees:
Do you want to share your own culture with the community? We would love to celebrate more cultures in our diverse neighborhood — just let us know!

We are currently building our Cultural Committees whose members will work with Highlands Council to plan cultural celebrations during the year. We currently have committees planning Chinese, Latino, and Indian events. These committees are always open to new volunteer members. If you’d like to assist with these committees, watch for meeting dates on the community calendar, or contact us to get on the list.

Community Group Leaders:
Do you have something you love to do? Why not start a community group and connect with neighbors who share your passion? Whether it’s a game, a topic of interest, or other activity you enjoy, there are sure to be others who would like to join you! Simply contact us to discuss your idea and we’ll go from there.

Event Committees:
All of our events – Bingo, Trivia, Candidate Forums, and especially Highland’s Day – are only possible with the help of volunteers. Whether you like to plan parties, craft decorations, or simply help an event run smoothly, there’s a place for you! ‘Have an idea for an event we may not have tried yet? We’d love to hear about it. To get involved with events, please reach out to us anytime, and watch for the Highland’s Day Call for Volunteers (coming soon!).

If you’d like to volunteer but don’t feel like the above options are a good fit for you, contact us anyway! We know that everyone has something to offer and will work with you to find an opportunity.

We look forward to hearing from YOU! Contact Lindsey at lindsey.p@ihcouncil.org or (425) 507-1109 to get involved.
