Turn Over a New Leaf – Volunteer!

233

Branch out this season, expand your canopy and fall into volunteering! 

Every citizen can play a role in our community through volunteerism. The City of Tualatin offers many ways to welcome the changing season. Put your skills to use or learn a new skill through one of the many volunteer opportunities this fall:

  • Be a Tech Tutor in the library and assist community members in their quest to understand and use today’s technology.
  • Plant trees by joining a Put Down Roots in Tualatin event. Make an impact on forest diversity and stream health while meeting new people and breathing fresh air.
  • Serve on a board or committee to shape the future of Tualatin. The City has seven active boards and committees that advise the City Council on the budget, parks, art, planning and more.
  • Add the magic to a special event: The West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta is October 16
  • Give a park or a tree a hug by removing storm debris and invasive plants from green spaces.
  • Spruce Up the Library on a Friday night or Saturday morning. Chase down dust bunnies, organize collections and socialize.
  • TweenTakeover, a monthly opportunity for middle school students to try out volunteering in the library.
  • Bring your creativity and tech knowledge to the Makerspace and help users try out cool tools, equipment and technology during open labs in the library. Play, learn and create!
  • Gather your team, work group, faith based network, club or neighbors and have some fun while doing a project in a park or along a trail.  Check out the many options for team building events.
  • If your time is limited and you want to stay close to home, consider Do It Yourself volunteering.  DIY volunteers pick the time and place to make a difference.
