Volunteers

WHO is a volunteer organization. What we are able to accomplish is due to the talents and efforts of volunteers. Conversely, what we don’t have volunteers for, doesn’t happen. Below are some volunteer positions. If one of them is a good fit for your interests and talents, please contact WHO.

WHO Board Position

The Washington Homeschool Organization board is a working board. Board membership is a challenging and rewarding experience. Our bylaws mandate a board of six to ten members. Board members need to agree with and support the purpose of the organization, and be willing to educate themselves on the issues facing homeschoolers. Experience at the local support group level is helpful. If you are interested in joining our board – please click on the button below.

Advocacy From Home

Often WHO needs individuals to make follow-up calls to State Representatives and Senators alerting them to the fact that they are receiving an important letter that they need to pay attention to! These calls usually involve talking to an aid to the legislator. Volunteers would be furnished with the content of the letter being sent, an outline of the issues involved, a basic script about what needs to be communicated, and contact phone numbers and emails for further questions or comments from the legislator. If you are interested in an advocacy job that can be done from home, this is it! Email WHO Advocacy by Phone.
