The world is Fun (TWIF)

The World is Fun is growing, and we are looking for awesome people, just like you, to join our Communication Team. Our mission is to get people involved in giving back to the Seattle community, and our volunteer staff makes this all possible.

TWIF works within Seattle communities to create new opportunities for people to give back in a social and philanthropic way. We connect people to volunteer activities that fit each individual’s interests, passions, and busy schedules while introducing them to a new network of friends. Since 2009 TWIF has developed a network of over 15,000 volunteers, engaged over 100 businesses and nonprofits, and coordinated events resulting in thousands of hours of volunteer service. And we accomplished all of that with a 100% volunteer staff. Today TWIF continues to grow - partnering with more businesses, more nonprofits, and more volunteers every day.
