Volunteer OpportunitiesSebastopol World Friends relies upon volunteer involvement and support in many different ways to make our sister city programs happen!
Here are some of the ways in which you can get involved:
Help with visiting delegations
When our guests from Japan and Ukraine travel here to get to know us and learn about our community, they enjoy stays with local families in their homes (check out our Hosting Opportunities) and a program of travel and education around our area. You can help welcome the delegation as a host family or help us make connections with the local organizations, businesses and agencies that participate in our educational programs and make them possible; you can also help to organize, drive for and chaperone these events. (Keep an eye on our Upcoming Events for more details or Contact Us.)
Help with SWF events
Sebastopol World Friends is proud to host occasional dinners for visiting guests and dignitaries, as well as educational presentations for the community offered by our delegations. We also host an annual Friendship Dinner for our community at which we celebrate our ongoing programs, offer a silent auction of local goods and enjoy the cuisine of our sister nations. You can help us with all aspects of these events, from planning to cooking to helping out at the events themselves. (Keep an eye on our Upcoming Events for more details or Contact Us.)
