Join the Dream Project (EDUC 260 & EDUC 369)

The Dream Project provides an opportunity for UW students to support low-income and first-generation high school students in South King County on applying to college and other post-secondary planning.

Mentor high school seniors on applying to colleges, filing the FAFSA/WASFA to access financial aid, applying to scholarships, and more.
Register for EDUC 260 and EDUC 369 on your UW registration. These classes cover important content related to social justice, college access, and mentorship, and will help prepare you to work with students effectively.

Volunteer Opportunity Beach Seining in Hood Canal

Juvenile Salmon/Fish Community Study in Hood Canal
Project Description for Volunteers
We will be sampling the nearshore fish communities of Hood Canal, Admiralty Inlet, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca using two sizes of beach seine (for channel margins and beaches) and fyke nets (for tidal sloughs and small creeks).  The primary goal of the project is to determine habitat usage by juvenile salmonids (specifically summer chum) so that the Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board can prioritize their habitat restoration projects in a manner that is most beneficial for salmon recovery.
