Every few months, Seattle Works opens our office to community partners–new and old–for our Partner Open House. It gives us a chance to meet face-to-face with some of the folks we email with all year, update them on all-things-Seattle-Works and hear how they’re using our programs. We always look forward to the event–and we always leave more in love with the nonprofits we work with every day!
On Wednesday, we had a chance to catch up with our friends at Northwest Chamber Chorus, The School for Acrobatics and New Circus Arts (SANCA), Seattle Public Schools, Small Faces Child Development Center, The World is Fun and Undriving, as well as meet new folks from Gage Academy of Art and Rise n’ Shine.
Our favorite part about our Open House is hearing our partners talk–especially to each other–about how they are using our volunteers and our programs to further the amazing work they are doing every day. From stories of Team Works teams tackling jackhammers and annihilating monster to-do lists to Bridge grads who are consistently impressing nonprofit boards around the city, we know the Seattle Works community is doing great work, and to hear it from the mouths of our partners just makes our day!
Thanks to all who stopped by on Wednesday–and we’re looking forward to seeing more of our partners at Open Houses in 2013!
