Community Engagement.  Program Enhancement.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Volunteers of America Oregon!  We could not touch the lives of so many without your help.

Last year, 900 individuals volunteered nearly 40,000 hours with our programs, helping to serve more than 17,000 children, families, adults and seniors in the greater Portland Metro area.

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups. And we always welcome your ideas if you have a particular vision or skill you would like to offer. 



You can also visit Volunteer Bridge for a taste of the on-going trainings and resources we provide volunteers in recognition of their service.
