Become a Volunteer

Creating community is an important function of Northeast Village PDX. Volunteers help this happen in several ways. Some volunteers provide basic support through providing services for members while others support our Village's infrastructure, thus helping to sustain our vibrant community.

Some of the benefits of being a volunteer include:
  • Staying active - physically, mentally and socially
  • Connecting with others - being part of our Village community
  • Putting talents, skills and capacities to good use
Examples of Member Services:
  • Transportation - to/from appointments, volunteer opportunities, social events
  • Home & yard Maintenance - changing light bulbs, seasonal yard clean up, etc.
  • Technical Support - help with computer, printer, cell phone, etc.
  • Village Partner - social or phone visits
  • Light Housekeeping - laundry, de-cluttering, etc.
Village Infrastructure:
  • Communication & Outreach
  • Development
  • Membership
  • Volunteer Recruitment & Training
  • Programming
  • Governing Council
  • Office Support
For more details about all the services available to members, see below: Service Guidelines and Definitions

Steps to Becoming a Volunteer

All volunteers are required to complete an application, meet with a Northeast Village PDX volunteer coordinator, and pass background and reference checks. Volunteers also receive special training. More information about the process: Steps to Becoming a Volunteer
