Volunteer Information

Our organization is comprised of motivated parents and citizens who believe deeply in Portland's public educational future. Join us! Your time is important; if you feel you're able to donate some of it to further our cause, please consider the following ways you can help:

Become a Board Member
- Commitment is attending a monthly meeting. You will add insight to our discussions, help to make decisions for PEF, and serve on committees.

Work on a Committee
- Commitment is less than a Board Member's. You will help by serving on a specific committee (i.e., Fundraising, Advocacy, Grants, Governance) and by attending committee meetings which are typically every month or less often, depending.

Help Plan an Event
- Help us organize a fundraiser. Your commitment will be to attend event sub-committee meetings which are held as needed.

Join our Mailing List
- If you don't have time to participate but would like to be kept informed on our progress and help spread the word to others in our community.
