Volunteer Opportunities:

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)

work to ensure that the best interests of the child are being represented in the courtroom. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

SMART Reading Program:

SMART was founded on the idea that communities play an important role in supporting children’s education.  We support PreK through third-grade children in Oregon to develop the motivation, self-confidence, and reading skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. SMART volunteers in communities across our state contribute their time and talents to help us achieve this goal. Learn more about the SMART reading program and volunteer opportunties: 

Oregon Coast Community Action: 

At ORCCA, volunteers play a special and important role in our operations. From helping staff fundraisers to providing a helping hand in the classroom, our volunteers help us achieve our mission. We welcome volunteers of all ages, from high school students through retirees.
