Volunteers are an important community resource. Organizations that serve Portland’s children and families rely on volunteers to share their time and talent; whether it be tutoring a student in a classroom; mentoring a teen with weekly outings; or helping a nonprofit with their professional business skills, volunteers make for a better and stronger city.
Organizations supported by the Portland Children’s Levy are looking for volunteers to bring new ideas, fresh perspective and honed experience to their programs. Retired volunteers are particularly welcome, as they have a vast amount of expertise that would benefit our community.
Opportunities are available in
- Early Childhood: Supporting children’s early development and readiness for kindergarten
