Volunteer Program

PP&R offers a variety of fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities at sites across the city. Annually, Portlanders volunteer over 450,000 hours with us; won't you join our team? Volunteer coaches, teacher aides, and mentors are always needed in our youth programs - and the parks, gardens, and natural areas welcome additional hands. No experience necessary, we'll train you. Ongoing and one-day projects are available. Contact Steve Pixley at 503-823-5121.



Washington Park needs your help! Friendly, outgoing people are needed to collect important data on park visitors and help be a part of shaping one of Portland’s most beloved places.

Volunteers must attend the training and at least one shift.

Training: Friday, August 15, 8:00-10:00 AM

Shift 1: Friday, August 15, 10:00 AM-1:00 PM

Shift 2: Saturday, August 16, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM

For more information or to sign up, please contact Andrew Pelsma at 503-416-2411 or
