Volunteer Opportunities

Primary tabs

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.

  • Early Childhood: Supporting children’s early development and readiness for kindergarten
  • After School: Providing safe, constructive after-school and summer programming that supports children’s well-being and school success

Community Cycling Center

We love Portland and bikes. So we put our two loves together, creating a non-profit organization on a mission to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.

We love Portland and bikes. So we put our two loves together, creating a non-profit organization on a mission to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.

We offer community programs that get more of our neighbors feeling the freedom of two wheels. We teach kids and adults how to ride safely, be their own bike mechanics, and get more confident behind the handlebars. And with a full-service bike shop selling new and used bikes, parts, and repairs, the wheels of this idea keep on turning.

Volunteers at Community Cycling Center are educators, bicycle mechanics, graphic designers, and ride leaders. They help make signature events like the Holiday Bike Drive run smoothly. They contribute to our inventory of used parts, directly benefiting our organization’s bottom line. Don’t have much experience? Don’t worry! New volunteers are guided by more experienced volunteers.

Volunteer Orientation

We look forward to welcoming new volunteers into our program on the first Tuesday of every month (February through November) with Volunteer Orientation. To RSVP for orientation or inquire about a specific position or project, please contact us at volunteer@communitycyclingcenter.org.

Drop Ins – after you complete orientation

Tuesday Evenings – Refurbish bikes for the Holiday Bike Drive. Do top-to-bottom assessments and all needed repairs on 12″ to 20″ kids’ bikes. Great for all skill levels — novice mechanics are guided by more experienced volunteers.

Sunday Salvage – Salvage and recycle busted bikes! After the weekly Salvage Sale, volunteers tear down remaining bikes to rescue usable parts and separate materials for recycling. Great for all skill levels.

Mechanic Monday – Have more mechanical experience than your average volunteer? Have you wrenched on many bikes in your day? Our Mechanic Monday team is responsible for maintaining our fleet of program bicycles. Contact us for more information: Volunteer@CommunityCyclingCenter.org.

Thursday Wheels – Contribute to our inventory! Help us refurbish donated wheel sets for sale in our shop. Volunteers with and without wheel truing experience are needed, especially those comfortable teaching the skill to new volunteers.

As an emerging and innovative non-profit organization MIKE Program is an independent, community-based public health initiative in Metro Portland that successfully connects education and community service with health by mentoring and empowering teenagers to adopt, apply, and advocate healthy behaviors. Our mission is to empower youth to be health leaders through education, mentorship and community outreach. As children mature, they increasingly are in control of their personal activities and are pivotal for influencing their families and peers to create a ripple of positive health outcomes in their communities.  As they develop the knowledge and social-emotional skills that help them personally make educated decisions for healthy lives, they become better prepared to start the next generation off well and to influence their peers and families now. Our vision is all people meeting their potential of vibrant good health, contributing as members of a vibrant strong society.

To help guide our health education program, we are looking for volunteer mentors in the Portland Metro area to join MIKE.  If you have any questions or would like to speak further about MIKE Program, please contact Cheryl Neal, Executive Director of MIKE Program at cheryl@mikeprogram.org
