Marrow is currently entirely volunteer-run!
Here are 4 ways you can help:

1 - Lend a Hand.

If you want to support Marrow but can’t commit to taking on a larger, self-directed project; fill out our volunteer interest form below, and we’ll reach out to you when an opportunity comes up that fits your interests, skills, and availability!

If you're not sure yet how you'd be able to contribute - come to one of our monthly volunteer days and chat with us! Check our calendar page to see when the next one is!


2 - Take on a larger project or responsibility.

We're seeking committed self-starters, and creative problem solvers who are able to identify what is actionable - and get it done!

If this sounds like you and you have a project in mind, fill out the proposal form below and let us know how you'd like to be involved:

3 - Lead Programming.

Marrow programming includes one-off workshops, recurring classes, community projects, events,

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.

To learn more about what we're looking for in our 2018 programming, check out this blog post.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out at

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).

4 - Become an Advocate.

We’re just starting this program - but advocates will be folks who are 25+ and invested in Marrow’s youth. Advocates are folks who show up for our youth at events, mentor them one-on-one or in small groups, talk Marrow up amongst their friends, and are generally just excited to be there for this younger generation.

This is still coming together - but keep an eye on our calendar for planning meetings and more info!


If you’re a youth (10-24) and you want to lend a hand, consider joining our youth collective!

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.
