Bring Joy to OPB's Youngest Fans!

We have several community events coming up featuring the beloved Daniel Tiger, and we’re looking for volunteers to wear the costume and greet his young fans.

Thursday, January 25

Legacy Children’s Hospital 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital 1:00 – 4:30 PM

Friday, January 26

OMSI 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Saturday, January 27


Two shifts:

12:00 – 3:00 PM

2:00 – 4:30 PM

To wear the costume, the volunteer must be 5'2" to 5'6" with a thin to medium build.

The mascot should be friendly, outgoing, and enjoy working with children. The mascots visiting the children’s hospitals need to be sensitive to the fact that they will be interacting with children facing health challenges while maintaining a cheerful and friendly presence.

The mascot will need to move through crowds of people, doors, and up and down stairs easily while wearing a large costume.

If you'd like to volunteer, please email Jenn F. at jforristal@opb.org.

Two Ongoing Roles Available

Our awesome archivist needs help with updating and reorganizing some of OPB’s archival material. Some of it is physical media (i.e. tapes) and some is digital files. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page past the OPB logo and check out the descriptions for Archivist Digitization Assistant and the Archivist Assistant. Please apply by 12/22.
