Volunteers are very important to us. Without volunteers, Eritrean Community in Seattle and Vicinity (ECISV) would not be able to provide the programs that now exist. Any individual who is age 18 and older may apply to volunteer. We ask for a minimum time com-mitment of 2 hours per month. We have regular volunteer meetings and we will reimburse for volunteer expenses such as travel.
