Volunteers play a vital role in the local and statewide organizing of Rural Organizing Project! Our network of human dignity groups is made up of volunteers who love their communities and are committed to making them safe and welcoming for all. The amazing and far-reaching work of ROP happens because of the hundreds of volunteers who serve on our board, take weekly shifts in our field offices around the state and in the Community Building Center in Cottage Grove, and help maintain our critical systems!

Are you interested in joining our incredible team of volunteers? Check out some of the key volunteer roles we are looking to fill below and fill out the form or give us a call at 503-543-8417. We’ll get back in touch with you to set up a call to answer any questions and get you set up!

Data Champion
There is no social movement without systems to keep us connected – help us to strengthen and maintain ours! This is a great role for folks who have an eye for detail. Bonus if you have experience with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems. 

Spanish Specialist
We are looking to add to our already amazing team of staff and volunteers who translate ROP communications and materials into Spanish! Roles include translating things like ROPnets and flyers into Spanish and reviewing and editing translated documents. You’ll always work closely with one other translator on a project. This is a great opportunity to contribute to ROP’s language accessibility and sharpen your own translation skills! 

Office Aficionado  
We are looking for a few volunteers who can come into the ROP office in Bend for monthly shifts to help with general office upkeep! If you like lifting heavy boxes, organizing bookshelves and/or figuring out ergonomic office design, we have roles for you!

Website Whiz 
Our website is one of the main ways folks find out how to get connected and what we’re up to. We need your help keeping it up to date and running smoothly! We’re looking for both a volunteer who would like to make weekly updates as well as someone who’s interested in larger one-time projects. Ideally, someone interested in these roles would have experience with WordPress and be familiar with HTML coding. 

Research Star
Human dignity groups often use data and research to inform their organizing. You could help them have that useful information on hand when they need it! Do you love doing deep dives on a specific topic, like what resources are available to renters in Oregon, and making that information easily accessible and understandable? If you’re reading this and already imagining the spreadsheet you would use to display this information, this could be the perfect role for you! 

Graphic Design Genius
Do you love to make eye-catching designs that help build the movement for justice and democracy? We often have a running list of projects that could use an artistic eye to take it to the next level!
