Open House

OPB's annual Open House is on Saturday, May 6 from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM, and we need you to pull it off! We have several volunteer positions available. Please take a look at the list of available positions on the "Available Volunteer Opportunities" tab (scroll down past the OPB logo) and email jforristal@opb.org to sign up. We hope to see you there!


Monthly Updates

Each month, we send an email that describes the current volunteer opportunities and news at OPB.


New Volunteer Opportunities

The most recent opportunities and updates can always be found on the "Available Volunteer Opportunities" tab.


OPB Personal Identification Number (PIN)

We’ve created a unique number for you to use at OPB to volunteer. Each time you arrive at OPB, you’ll use this number to sign in at the computer in the lobby. This allows us to track your hours. Also, remember to sign out when you leave!


Your PIN is usually the last 5 numbers of your phone number.

(If there is a 0 in the last five digits of your phone number, please email us at volunteer@opb.org to get your PIN.)


Other Opportunities

Most months, there will be some new position offerings at OPB. These can vary from things like being an office assistant in one of the administrative departments at OPB to doing research for a show like Oregon Art Beat. Often times, we'll have many volunteers that are interested in and qualified for such positions. Most of the time, the staff member that will be supervising the volunteer will conduct interviews to select the best candidate for the position.


Many people come to OPB hoping to volunteer doing hands-on technical work like hosting a program on OPB Radio, doing camera work or video editing, or reporting on current events. These sorts of opportunities are rarely, if ever, available to volunteers. If you're looking for that type of experience, you may want to check out some of the other community media organizations in the area. If you are interested in seeing a list of these organizations, please let us know.
