Donate your skills, time and talent to Seattle World School!

There are many ways to volunteer at the Seattle World School, or with SWS alumni from SWS and other high schools as they continue their education.

To volunteer as a mentor with the SWS Scholarship and Mentoring Program, please contact Nancy Peterfreund, Director, at

In-school volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to:

Daytime Classroom/After school tutoring
Volunteers are needed in the classroom during the day. Particularly needed are individuals with computer skills who can help in the computer lab.  Volunteers are needed for after school tutoring in all subjects.

Fundraising  The Friends of Seattle World School raise funds for the SWS Scholarship and Mentoring progra for our alumni.  The SWS fund raises funds for teachers and students in SWS.  See the “Donate” page for instructions on how to donate to either fund.

Promotion  The Seattle World School is an invaluable resource for our city, and a model for other districts seeking to learn how to better support their own English Language Learner students.  However, many people are still unaware of the work being done to smooth the transition from immigrant/refugee status to American high school student. We welcome help with raising awareness of the school’s special role through increased press and television news coverage.
