Volunteer Opportunities

Get Involved

Language and Culture Programs (LCP) at Western Washington University welcome motivated students and community members to join our English classes and interact with students from all over the world.

Are you a student? Volunteering in LCP is a great way to fulfill service learning course requirements!
