Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in volunteering with Constructing Hope?  Please look at the volunteer opportunities we have listed below and let us know what you are interested in:

Volunteer Positions Available:

Hands-on Trainer:
Classroom trainers and instructors are needed for completing the hands-on training our students receive during their classes. We prefer a  journeyman certification in carpentry or similar trade.

Mentor:
Mentors attend our mentor gatherings and talk with the students (current and past) to help them be successful in their apprenticeship programs.  Discussions range from balancing work and home, to how to impress your foreman.  Come share your knowledge of the construction industry with our students.

Math Tutor:
 Our students learn applied construction math. Some need extra assistance to catch up to what is industry standard for their desired apprenticeship. Come help a student succeed by getting into a career.

Fundraiser/Event Volunteer:
We have events and fundraisers where we need volunteers to help.  From simple set up and break down to helping us build relationships with other organizations in the community, if you are interested in helping with events, there is something you can help us do.

Office Assistance:
What office doesn’t need more help with the data input, phone calls, filing, and organizing?

Maintenance Assistance:
We know things break and we know we don’t always have the time/resources to get everything fixed and cleaned up. Are you able to help with small projects around the building?

To get involved, please email Pat at PatD@ConstructingHope.org.  Or call us at 503-281-1234
Indicate what you are interested in and when you would be available to volunteer (example: “I would like to help as a fundraiser volunteer.  I am available Thurs, Fri or Sat evenings”).
