As always, the Hands On Portland Community Project Calendar has MANY opportunities, but not all opportunities meet the Concordia University Service Learning guidelines requiring direct work with individuals and directness in addressing community needs. Any re-posted opportunities to this blog meet the Concordia Guidelines.
Below is a re-posted opportunity from Kids First Project in partnership with Portland Homeless Family Solutions that’s coming up and is available for registration through Hands On Portland’s Community Project Calendar.
Become a Program Night Volunteer to Empower Homeless Youth! (age 8+)
This awareness provides the resources for children that are experiencing homelessness. You can help these children reach their full potential by freeing up time for parents so they can get proper training on job skills and ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty.
Volunteers run this entire program; volunteers of all ages have the option of becoming a tutor for a child. Whether you’re interested in background work or interacting with children, your impact makes all the difference.
You can make a commitment and help these children up to 3 times a week or come and help out once.
Portland Homeless Family Solutions
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday: 6-7pm
Sign up by expressing interest here to join this group of volunteers at Hands on Greater Portland to help those children who are struggling though poverty and homelessness.
After expressing interest, the volunteer leader / coordinator will contact you to confirm participation and provide directions for this opportunity.
**Concordia University’s Service Opportunity Blog often reposts opportunities from our community partners that have limited volunteer capacity. Always check directly with the community partner or referring agency to register, as Concordia’s Office of Service Leadership does NOT guarantee availability at community partner opportunities**
