PDXWIT is a 100% volunteer-run organization, which means there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

As a volunteer, you will initially be matched to one of our "Starter" roles. Those roles are incredibly important because they make up the backbone of our organization's operations. They also give you a chance to experience what it's like to volunteer with us before committing to a role with a larger scope.

When new volunteer opportunities arise, we recruit from our community of volunteers who have previously engaged in a Starter role.

 Here are a few examples of Starter roles:

Event Check-in

Slack Channel Moderator

Satellite Event Organizer

Lighting Speaker
