QuEST - Quaker Experiential Service & Training
Goal of Program
QuEST is a year-of-service program in Seattle, Washington, that provides young adults with quality work at local nonprofits, an intentional residential community, and opportunities for training and reflection. We seek to build a peaceful, just, sustainable world by empowering young adults as agents of social change and social service.

QuEST Fellows are matched with one of our partner agencies as a full-time year-long volunteers. We offer a range of placements, including direct service work, advocacy, and program support.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old, able to work full-time, and interested in community living and voluntary simplicity. We are an inclusive community and welcome applicants from all backgrounds and identities.
QuEST Fellows receive room and board, a monthly personal stipend, transportation and health care funds, and an exit stipend.
Participants live communally in a house in the centrally-located University District: private bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, full kitchen and dining room, small porch and garden space.
QuEST facilitates a four-day orientation; two weekend retreats per year; two afternoon workshops per month. Fellows also receive job training provided by their placement agencies.
