Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Youth Suicide Prevention Program. If you are a Washington State resident, please contact Kate at volunteer@yspp.org. She will contact you to discuss your interests and what opportunities are or will become available, and send you our online application*.

If you reside outside Washington State, we suggest you look for a contact in your area on the National Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) website.

Examples of volunteer opportunities:

  • become a member of the Board;
  • attend health fairs and distribute materials;
  • package key chains and posters for school campaigns;
  • conduct Internet research;
  • support fundraising events;
  • fold and stuff hundreds of letters for our annual holiday appeal;
  • write letters to newspaper editors;
  • advocate for funding with state legislators, and
  • fax press releases

For a list of specific volunteer opportunities, visit our Opportunities page.

We do not provide counseling for depressed and/or suicidal youth.

We are looking for volunteers with a variety of skills. You do not need to be an accomplished professional. Maybe you are retired; maybe you are just starting out and looking for work experience. We can provide unpaid internship placements in public health, marketing, and communications.

* The information you share with us will remain confidential.
