COVID Vaccination Requirement: Important Update! Per AGO Policy, employees and volunteers of the AGO must be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment. Being fully vaccinated means that an individual is at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. Effective March 14, 2022, the AGO announced pursuant to its policy, that employees and volunteers must also receive a booster shot as a condition of employment. Employees or volunteers who are not eligible to receive the booster before their start date, due to required waiting times after receiving their initial vaccine(s), must provide confirmation of the vaccine type and date received so the AGO can calculate the date by which they must receive the booster. If you are selected to serve within the AGO as an employee or volunteer, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination and booster (if already received) before you are able to begin work. You may request an accommodation if you are unable to meet the requirement due to a medical or religious necessity. Currently all staff, whose duties permit, are teleworking, though the AGO plans to re-open its offices for visitors and staff beginning April 4, 2022.

The General Volunteer & Internship progam is still suspended and we are not accepting applications for that program at this time.
If you have questions or need clarification regarding volunteer opportunities, please send your questions to: HRemployment@atg.wa.gov
Please note: Volunteers to the AGO are also subject to the guidelines for the criminal conviction screening process in response to the Fair Chance Act that went into effect in June of 2018. FCA prohibits employers from automatically or categorically excluding individuals with a criminal record from consideration before determining that they are otherwise qualified for the position.
As the final phase in the volunteer application process, the Human Resources Office will contact the volunteer applicant to complete the separate criminal conviction screening process.
