In 2013, Volunteer Bridge was launched as resource for VOA Oregon volunteers to learn more about issues affecting the populations we serve, share ideas with peers, and stay connected to the organization.
This blog includes entries by staff and volunteers, links to relevant on-line trainings and resources, featured volunteer opportunities, discussions to share your experiences and tips with other volunteers, and notices about in-person trainings available exclusively to VOA Oregon volunteers.

We hope that Volunteer Bridge serves to deepen your connection with your personal motivation for serving, the relationships you build, and the broader mission of VOA Oregon to serve the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you!
