Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes and colors, but their hearts are pink and their caring has no limit. Are you a leader, a thinker or a doer? Use your talents in our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever!  We need you now more than ever. Volunteers provide countless hours contributing their skills to further our mission. We will work with your availability. Every minute you spend helping gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer. Contact us at volunteers@komenoregon.org or call (503)552-9160 to learn more.

Student Volunteer Opportunities

Being a student volunteer is a great way for individuals to gain experience and help our organization. Our student volunteers work for 10-35 hours per week to help in development, administration, communications, or events. Our student volunteers are involved in all areas of the organization, can receive school credit for their hours, and get hands-on experience in a nonprofit setting. Many of our student volunteers go on to be part of other nonprofits and some have even become Komen employees. We depend of our volunteers and cherish their contributions! Summer internship opportunities will be announced in the spring.
