In Portland, OR? We'd love to meet you.


A lot of great ideas are floating around this town. Can we hear yours? (Image: Photos by Mavis, Flickr/Creative Commons)

We’re looking for lots of very short-term volunteers in our Portland office this fall. If you’re in the neighborhood, please let us know if you’d like to help out!

Project #1: Putting the “idea list” back in Idealist

Celeste loves ideas.

With your help, frequent blogger Celeste is creating a nifty new web feature that will help good ideas spread faster.

If you’re the kind of person who has good ideas about how to make Portland (or the world) better, or the kind of person who helps other people implement their ideas, please consider a quick conversation with her. Find all of the details at


Project #2: user research

Elise is as fascinated by user research as she is by space.

Elise, our project manager for web development, has a one-track mind: she wants the user experience to be the best it can be.

If you’ll sit down with Elise and let her watch you use the site for an hour, we’ll throw in a $25 Amazon gift card!

Learn more on the volunteer opportunity listing on Idealist, or sign up here.


Thanks in advance for your help!
