Volunteer Advocates work in their communities to improve education and increase access to Death with Dignity within the state of Washington by reaching out to the providers and organizations involved in end-of-life care.
Volunteer Advocates help us connect with adult care communities, hospice organizations, pharmacies, physicians, and other communities who want to know more about the Death with Dignity Act and other end-of-life choices. It is meaningful work that allows for flexibility in schedule, and is best complemented by monthly meetings, access to technology, a willingness to drive, and some weekend or evening work, depending on your focus.

volunteer CLIENT ADVISERS
Since our founding, the lifeblood of End of Life Washington has been our client support team. Our Volunteer Client Advisers work one-on-one with terminally ill people.
By speaking openly and candidly about death without judgment and without discomfort, volunteers empower their clients to maintain choice and control at the end of life. No particular set of skills or experiences is required in order to be a Volunteer Client Adviser. Our volunteer team includes physicians, hospice workers, social workers, registered nurses, psychologists, nurse practitioners, chaplains, attorneys, and others. End of Life Washington provides training and ongoing support for volunteers.

We are currently most in need of volunteers who are in, or willing to drive to, Spokane, Richland, Whidbey Island, and Skagit County, Washington. We are also currently in need of volunteers in the Seattle area.
We also need people who have flexible schedules and are willing to drive throughout the state.
