Education: Volunteer Opportunities

Gain valuable firsthand experience in youth development, teaching, and nonprofit work while building and sustaining important connections with the greater Portland educational community.

SEEDS @Schools

SEEDS @Schools for 2020-2021 will provide virtual volunteer opportunities with Lane Middle School and through Children's Book Bank. Both opportunities seek to support literacy efforts in the Portland community by providing 1 to 1 peer support as well as increasing access to the necessary tools to improve literacy. 

I’m interested!
