WomenStrength is a program of the Portland Police Bureau. Since 1979, we have provided free self-defense classes and personal safety workshops to people around the Portland area. We have taught self-defense skills to approximately 30,000 women and teenage girls, and personal safety workshops to over 100,000 women and men.
In December 2013, Portland City Council approved funding for the Portland Police Bureau to pilot a boy's violence prevention and education program in 2014. The mission of the BoyStrength program will be to foster awareness, redefine masculinity, and encourage boys to be leaders in nonviolence. For more information on the program, including in-depth goals and volunteer opportunities, click here.
Volunteers needed! If you are interested in helping us teach young boys about nonviolence and self-awareness, please fill out this application by May 1st.
WomenStrength and GirlStrength are happy to set up booths or tables at events so that we can spread the word about the fantastic services the programs have to offer. Our booths provide program information, information and resources on violence against women, facts and myths about violence and sexual assault, as well as information and tips for personal safety.
WomenStrength and GirlStrength are looking for confident, caring and dedicated women to volunteer their time to teach free holistic self-defense classes.
No experience necessary! We encourage women of all ages and backgrounds to apply.
