We have a place for you!

Volunteers make an immediate, positive, and local impact. With a small staff, volunteers magnify the impact we can have.  There are many ways to help with just a few listed below.  Please contact kristy@guardian-partners.org to find out more.

Monitor

As a volunteer monitor, you will be appointed by the Court to a specific case.  Your job will be to review the file at the Probate Court, visit independently with the Guardian and the Protected Person and write a report to the Court regarding your findings.

Volunteer monitors are at the heart of our mission to ensure vulnerable Oregonians are not experiencing abuse or neglect.  The information you provide to the Judge will be essential in deciding how to best proceed in an effort to ensure the Protected Person is safe and thriving.

This volunteer opportunity is a great fit for someone who needs flexibility as you can take a case at a time and work around your schedule to get the job done.  If you are someone who wants to volunteer working directly within the legal and social service systems to help prevent abuse and neglect, let’s talk.

Community Educator

We have several Classes which newly appointed Guardians, Conservators, Personal Representatives and Trustees are required to attend.  We are seeking volunteers with both education and experience in these fields who would like to teach a 90 minute class on one or more of these topics.  Curriculum has already been developed and a stipend is available.  For more information, please contact leathan@guardian-partners.org

Special Events

Do you like to plan events?  Our annual fundraiser, the Partners Party is held each November and we could use your help with everything from event design, ticket sales and guest relations to day of event set up.  Our goal is to raise $60,000 in support of the organization.   Email kristy@guardian-partners.org

Office

Students arriving to class need to be checked in.  This is a great opportunity for someone who can give an hour or two once in a while.  Other clerical needs include answering the phones, helping with mailings, and all kinds of daily tasks that keep our operations going strong.  Contact leathan@guardian-partners.org for more information
