Portland Promise Volunteer Opportunities

Portland Promise Volunteer Opportunities


The Portland Promise Center is a thriving faith-based community development center in the heart of Louisville’s Portland neighborhood. For the past 62 years, we have provided families and kids in this economically depressed area with the resources they need to anchor their lives to a firm foundation of faith and to build futures filled with hope.

The Portland Promise center is looking for volunteers to lead and teach breakout sessions to the youth and kids from 6pm  – 7pm weeknights during the school year. These sessions would be one night a week and last for 6 weeks. Below are some examples of classes that could be offered.
