You can look for current volunteering opportunities on the Whatcom Volunteer Center’s website at https://www.whatcomvolunteer.org/ or by calling (360) 734-3055 for more information. Once you have found an agency you want to work with, make sure you check with your probation officer and/or the court, to make sure you are approved to complete your hours there.
Community service must be completed in Whatcom County, or the county in which you reside. Community service hours will only be accepted from 501(c)(3) designated, community-based, non-profit agencies. The hours worked must be for the benefit of the community, and not for the individual. Participation in a training program or a school setting does not qualify as community service. The person performing the community service cannot receive compensation of any type, financial or otherwise, for the work performed.

You can pay your Probation fees through the court that oversees your case (i.e. Bellingham Municipal, Whatcom County District Court, etc.). For questions regarding fees and payment plans, please contact the court’s clerk.
