About

Adelante Mujeres is seeking a part time volunteer to serve as support for Adelante Mujeres' annual fundraiser, Fiesta of Hope. By assisting Adelante's development team with sending request letters, making personal follow-up calls, creating auction baskets, and reaching out to new businesses, you will further Adelante's mission to provide education and empowerment opportunities to low-income Latina women and their families.

There will be a few meetings at Adelante Mujeres' offices in Forest Grove to organize and check in, but much of this work will be done on your own time keeping in communication with development staff by email or phone.

Key Responsibilities:

* make personal follow up calls

* help us create new and exciting auction baskets

* cultivate relationships with businesses in the Portland Metro area

Length of Position:

Initial planning will occur from September to October with most of the procurement work being done January through February.

Qualifications/Experience:

This is a job for anyone interested in a commitment of just a few months, likes to be creative, and enjoys outreach.

Adelante Mujeres is a non-profit, community organization in Forest Grove, Oregon that provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to low-income Latina women and their families. In 2002, a small group of low-income Latina immigrants and their allies sought out to improve the quality of life for themselves and their community, thus Adelante Mujeres was born. From Adult Education and Early Childhood Education to Chicas Youth Development, Sustainable Agriculture, Small Business Development, and the Forest Grove Farmers Market, Adelante Mujeres’ education-based programs serve over 500 Latino families in Washington County every year.

Our live and silent auctions encourage donations at our annual Fiesta of Hope. That fundraising event's income provides funding for our programs throughout the year.
