Volunteer Opportunity

Dear Students, Staff and Faculty: The City of Portland is hosting a summer recreation program for kids at Brooklyn Park (east end of the Ross Island Bridge on Milwaukie Avenue, 2 blocks south of Powell Boulevard) from June 28 through August 19. The program operates Monday through Friday from 1 to 9 p.m.

The program is looking for volunteers to lead arts & crafts sessions with the children (roughly 8 to 13 years of age). The volunteers will come up with ideas for activities and will have access to unlimited materials.

Below are some examples of activities that have been done in the past as well as a partial list of accessible materials: Activities · Making jewelry · Creating dragon flies out of popsicle sticks · Painting/coloring · Creating murals Materials · Yarn · Paint/markers · Pipe cleaners · Crate paper/construction paper · Sand · Clothes pins · Glue · Popsicle sticks · Hundreds of other materials.

Volunteers will work with the children twice a week for two-hours. There is no set time for arts & crafts, so the volunteers can choose what hours they would like to work. You do not have to commit for the entire summer to volunteer. You can volunteer for as little as one session up to volunteering for the entire program.

At the end of the summer the City of Portland will award volunteers a certificate honoring them for their service, and verifying the number of hours they volunteered.

For more information or to sign up, please contact Craig Montag at 503-246-1997.
