By now you’ve earned the right to relax, to coast a bit and let the world go by. Yet the opportunities to enrich your community and find meaning through service are so plentiful at Willamette View, most residents find them hard to resist.
To live here is to give of yourself, in your choice of a million different ways. The old chestnut is true -- the more you give, the more you get. We give it our own shine: The more you give, the larger your life.
When it comes to volunteerism and involvement, residents make it happen, in groups or on their own. The Resident Association coordinates projects on campus and in the wider community. Here are just a few examples:
- “Green Team”: These environmentally-focused residents have established a campus recycling program, coordinated community cleanups and infused sustainability into many aspects of life at Willamette View.
- Library Team: This active group manages our three libraries and expansive collection of books and other resources.
- Ham Radio Group (part of the Clackamas Co. Emergency Management system)
- Pastoral Care Services
- Cultural Series: Residents choose and organize outings to cultural performances and venues around the Portland area.
Willamette View also sponsors volunteer opportunities that make an impact on our neighbors, our city and our environment. Recent activities include:
- Earth Day 2013 Cleanup with the City of Milwaukie, featured in The Clackamas Review
- Heart Walk 2013 with the American Heart Association
- Elk Rock Island Planting Day 2012 with the City of Portland and Portland Parks and Recreation
