Get Involved



2 simple steps

1. Fill out your application.

2. Attend Orientation - dates listed below.

Volunteer Application - Electronic

Volunteer Application - Hard Copy

The first application above is a PDF form, so it’s easy for you to complete electronically. Note: make sure you download the PDF to your computer and save it before you start filling out your information, otherwise you will just send me a blank copy. Please type your name in the signature boxes and click the check box.

If you have trouble using the PDF form, print out the second form above, fill it out by hand and bring it to orientation. I will also have copies at Orientation.

If you have any questions, please contact Camille McDaniel at (503) 595-2009.

Request More Information

To request general information about whether volunteering with us will help you meet your personal or professional goals, contact Volunteer Services by email or call 503-595-2009.

If you are interested in a one-time project, it is helpful for us to know your availability and what type of project interests you. If you are looking to adopt a project as a group, please share your preferred project, the number of individuals in your group, and your ideal dates & times. We will then send you a detailed description of your project and connect you with program staff to plan your day. Orientation and background check clearance are not required for one-time projects – you can sign-up today!

“I have been impressed by the respectful, professional and friendly environment that is created as the values of VOA are implemented across the agency. There has always been help when I have encountered a challenge or needed broader perspective.”
