Educating for Social Change
Are you a high school or college student looking to volunteer in Old Town Portland?
Where the larger Portland community often looks with fear and disdain on the poor and mentally ill, Maybelle Center volunteers see people who are worthy of dignity, connection, and care. Our volunteers are catalysts for changing our communities, bringing everyone into a supportive community, no matter their past or present circumstances. If you have a passion for connecting with people and creating community with them, you will enjoy spending time in our community.
We would love to have you volunteer with us. We have a number of opportunities for students to get an in-depth look into the Old Town-Downtown community and those that live here. It will forever change you.
