SE Portland Neighborhood Coordinators

Neighborhood Coordinator

Where: In Portland neighborhoods East of the Willamette River; West Gresham neighborhoods; and all neighborhoods within Milwaukie, Oregon City, and Wilsonville.

When: Neighborhood Coordinators are not currently being recruited.

Neighborhood Coordinators are a crucial volunteer role for our neighborhood planting events, but due to Covid-19 the need for the role has lessened. Typically, this role is needed the few months leading up to a neighborhood planting as well as providing support on the day of the planting event. The precise timing and time commitment for your neighborhood is flexible and can often work around someone’s availability.

More About this Role: 

Neighborhood Coordinators (NCs) are a special role for those who love to work behind-the-scenes. If you’re looking to connect with your neighbors and make a lasting impact in your neighborhood, the Neighborhood Coordinator might be the perfect fit for you!

Neighborhood Coordinators are absolutely critical to the mission and success of Friends of Trees. Each NC work closely with staff members to help answer questions from tree purchasers, create outreach strategies, and organize the annual neighborhood planting day.  The most important piece of the equation is the willingness to communicate with your neighbors, get excited about having more trees in your neighborhoods — and, of course, have fun doing it!
