See how you can lend your talents to support Oregon Environmental Council
OEC volunteers are an important part of our success. In fact, OEC was founded in 1968 entirely by volunteers! Today, there are a number of ways to get involved:
Program volunteer opportunities
If you have time and talent to lend for a committed period of time, consider becoming a program volunteer. Our program volunteers are typically tasked with contributing 80% program-related work and 20% administrative work as part of their commitments. These unpaid positions provide an opportunity to team up with OEC staff to help us achieve our mission while gaining valuable experience.
OEC depends upon Oregonians near and far to spread the word about our work and motivate people to take action. Here are a few things you can do without ever leaving your neighborhood:
We'll send you email alerts when legislators or other decision-makers need to hear from their constituents
"Like" our Facebook page. You'll get breaking news and action opportunities. By "liking" and "sharing" our posts, you can help us reach more Oregonians.
Let your community know that you care about OEC's issues: write a letter to the editor. When you stay up to speed on our work through Facebook and the OEC e-news each month, you'll find lots to comment on.
OEC's outreach director offers presentations on eco-healthy homes, green cleaning, ripple effects of your food choices and more. If you would like to arrange for a presentation in your community, please contact us!
Join the corps
OEC occasionally invites volunteers to help us with office tasks or table at community events. When opportunities arise, we would love to let you know! Sign up to receive our monthly volunteer e-mail update as well as special alerts that we send when we need volunteer support.
