Become a Tree Team Ambassador this Summer 2017

Posted on May 25, 2017 at 10:20 am

Join Friends of Trees as we hit up Summer and Fall events to motivate, empower, and educate the local community around our mission to bring people together to plant trees.

by Pablo Brito

This role is a good fit for an extroverted and a talkative tree-friend who can attend 2-4 events with us throughout Summer and Fall. You don’t need to have vast knowledge about trees (we will train you!) You just need to be open to learn something new and have fun with us all over the Portland-Metro and Salem areas. The training for this role will be held Wednesday, June 14th, from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Here is the link to the training: Tree Team Ambassador Training. Our training will provide snacks and beverages, updates on tree issues, and you will receive a rad “tree team” t-shirt as well.

Our Ambassadors are the face of Friends of Trees and will represent our organization in a positive manner. You will be attending events with other Friends of Trees staff and your fellow Ambassadors. Be ready to have thoughtful and engaging conversations with community members about what Friends of Trees does and how trees help create healthy communities!

If this sounds like a great fit please sign up using our form here.  We hope to work with you soon! If you have any questions about being a part of the Tree Team, please get in contact with our Volunteer and Outreach Team: // 503-595-0213.

Alas, our annual Fruit Tree Giveaway is CANCELLED this year, and likely into the future 🙁 We simply can’t get the stock. But please, keep planting trees any way you can!
