The Senior Center of West Seattle strives to promote independence and life enjoyment by providing access to medical / legal services, community housing resources, lifelong learning opportunities and social events to keep seniors engaged in our community. We offer meaningful opportunities to volunteers interested in promoting independence in the lives of seniors while engaging them within the West Seattle community. By partnering with our staff, volunteers help to provide the essential daily functioning of the activities, classes, events, and social programs that keep our Senior Center thriving.
We offer a wide variety of activities to enjoy like yoga, computer classes, painting, bridge, line dancing, and more. Our chef serves nutritious meals daily. And in our Cafe, seniors can have fresh baked cookies with their coffee, while meeting with friends and making new ones.

This is a great place to start if you have prior to little office setting experience. The employees are friendly and helpful if you have any questions, while the seniors that come in for their activities are also great and help out if they see you're a first timer :)
