If you know and love Portland, the perfect volunteer opportunity awaits you with the Visitor Information Center located in Pioneer Courthouse Square. This is a chance for you to share your knowledge and passion for Portland’s sites, history and culture, while also learning more through ongoing training programs, newsletter updates and educational site tours covering area attractions, hotels, restaurants and events.

As a volunteer, you will serve as an integral part of the Travel Portland team by greeting visitors and providing them with directions or suggestions on key points of interest, dining options and more.

Conveniently located in downtown Portland — on both the MAX line and Tri-Met bus routes — the Visitor Information Center is easy to access from anywhere in the Portland area. During each four-hour volunteer shift, you will interact with local, regional, national and international visitors to Portland, making new friends and learning along the way.
