If working with trees and connecting communities are two things that excite you, the Crew Leader volunteer role could be a great fit for you!
The Friends of Trees Neighborhood Trees Program is a program that plants 8'-12' tall street and yard trees in residential neighborhoods across Portland, Vancouver, WA, Oregon City, and Gresham. We pride ourselves on our amazing volunteers who plant these trees, the communities that come together for our Saturday planting events, and the care and investment each resident puts in to care for our city's urban canopy.
Crew Leaders are trained volunteers who are crucial to planting trees properly and leading groups of volunteers during the planting season. Friends of Trees will provide you with a comprehensive training and all we ask is that Crew Leaders commit to support us at at least 4 Saturday plantings during the planting season.
The November 10th training is taking place in Vancouver WA. We have another Crew Leader training in Portland on November 3rd, if that works better for your schedule. Curriculum for each training is the same and once completed, you will be able to volunteer at Neighborhood Trees events throughout Portland, Vancouver, Gresham, and Oregon City!
The training to become a Crew Leader is free (and includes lunch and a t-shirt!) but registration is required. If you are looking for a great leadership opportunity that allows you to combine your love of the outdoors with making a long-lasting impact on your community. Spots are limited and this training will fill-up so register soon!
