Looking for Volunteers

Portland JACL is an entirely volunteer run organization and we could always use more help. Just a couple of hours a month could support our mission of community, culture and civil rights. Looking for help with:

  • Web & Social Media
  • Newsletter
  • Development
  • Membership
  • Event tabling
  • Print calendar

Additionally, members are always welcome to join committees for advocacy and finance. Meetings take place roughly once a month over Zoom.

Volunteering with Portland JACL is a great way to give back or to get engaged with the local Nikkei community. Email us at contact@pdxjacl.org or fill out our volunteer interest form. ありがとうThank you!
