Volunteer Info

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Children’s Clean Water Festival!

About the Festival

The Festival is a free, day-long environmental education event that engages about 1,400 fourth-grade students from throughout the Portland, Oregon metro area. Each year, students from approximately 20-25 schools come to a college campus for a day of learning and fun. Volunteers play a variety of integral roles to help make the Festival a success.

Sounds like fun! How do I get involved?

Volunteers can get involved with the Festival as Class Guides:

  • Class guides lead a class around the campus making sure that they successfully get from activity to activity (activities are 25 minutes long and there is 10 minutes travel time between activities). Class guides volunteer for the entire event (7:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m.), and are provided time to orient themselves to the campus before their class arrives.

Sign up to volunteer here.

Other things to know

  • Food: A light continental breakfast and bag lunch will be provided for each volunteer. Breakfast is available at 7:00 a.m. and lunches will be provided during your scheduled lunch break.
