Engage with our community

Volunteers play a key role in helping us support our scholars.

Our goal is to provide meaningful opportunities for individuals and groups who generously contribute their time, talent and expertise to strengthen our community.

Career Development Activities


The Leadership and Career Development Team seeks volunteers to join us in supporting every Rainier Scholar to have the opportunity to explore their interests, build skills, and pursue their passions. You can support scholars through a variety of career-related programs and activities, such as:

  • Leadership Labs
  • Career & Leadership Weekend  
  • Career Expo  
  • High School Internship Program  
  • College Internship Program  
  • Alumni Hiring  
  • Career Support (resume review, mock interviews, networking, etc.)

Knowing more about a prospective volunteer’s background and expertise is helpful to us. Please fill out this form. For more information, please email Sara Jackson, Associate Director of Career Development. Email

College Care Packages

October and February

Twice a year, volunteers assemble and send care packages to our college students. It is a great way to connect with a scholar and provide a much-needed boost during final exam time.

If you are interested in helping with college care packages, please email Bethany Furubayashi, Director of Corporate Engagement. Email
