All City of Portland advisory body volunteers must work with their liaison and the Office of Community Life to complete mandatory trainings as part of the onboarding process.
Volunteers are in an important role that comes with ethical responsibilities and expectations for behavior. The only requirement to be eligible for an advisory body is that the volunteer live, work, play, or worship in the City of Portland, so we provide the training you need after you are selected to serve. Volunteers are accountable to State of Oregon laws, and Civic Life provides a foundation of what those are, and resources to learn more. Subject matter experts produced the content, and Civic Life provides the platform for delivering and tracking trainings, as well as support for scheduling volunteers to take the training in person.
Available immediately by PowerPoint. Video option with quiz available. Ask your staff liaison to schedule a group viewing session.
