General Volunteering:

We're seeking self-starters and creative problem-solvers who are able to identify what is actionable and get it done! If this sounds like you, fill out our volunteer survey below and let us know how you'd like to be involved:

If you're not sure yet how you'd be able to contribute - come to one of our volunteer potlucks and chat with us! Or sign up for our volunteer newsletter, which lists all of our smaller, monthly volunteer needs.

Marrow is currently entirely volunteer-run.

Facilitate programming:

Our programming is led by real makers, doers and thinkers from the Portland community. Some individuals are at Marrow on a regular basis, and others have organized a single event or workshop.

The proposal form is in questionnaire format to make it easy for you (feel free to click the submission button just check out the questions, without submitting anything).

Join our Board of Directors:

Our board is a diverse group of individuals that supports our staff, sees that Marrow is effectively following through on our mission, and helps fundraise. We have a mandatory monthly board meeting, and most months we also have optional work periods or social gatherings as well.

We are currently looking for individuals with experience in nonprofit management, business, fundraising, or grant-writing to join our board as directors. We're also always looking for diverse voices that will add a new perspective to our board.

All volunteers who are 18+ and have interaction with youth are subject to a background check. Please know that not all offenses will prohibit you from working with us, but some may.
