Community Mentors are volunteers, age 25 and older, who support Portland Outright’s community programming and the young leaders who make up the membership of our organization. Being a Community Mentor is a non-traditional, multifaceted role that includes co-facilitating meetings and events, supporting ongoing creative and visual arts projects, and working in partnership with young leaders who are actively organizing for their dignity and rights.
In this training we'll cover:
- an overview of Outright, our work and community programming
- Outright's model for youth organizing, transformative mentorship, and youth leadership development
- an intro to the practices and skills we use to make our work possible (peer-support, harm-reduction, de-escalation, etc)
- our principles and values for youth/adult partnership in youth-led organizing
This training is by invitation-only. To learn more about volunteering for this role, as well as others, please visit the volunteer section of this site.
