Volunteer Downtown!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of downtown. 

From cleaning up our streets, to directing our path forward, the work of DOCA would not be possible without volunteers.  As a volunteer driven organization, we rely on the commitment of hundreds of volunteers, and want to invite you to be a part of your downtown community!  As a volunteer, you're a part of preserving history and culture, stimulating the economy and creating a great image of our downtown!


special event volunteering

Don't have a lot of time, but still want to have fun and get involved? Join us for one-day volunteering opportunities.  We are looking for people who can give a few hours of their time to help with downtown clean ups and our summer events.  Work hard, make new friends and get to know your downtown in a day!

committee service

Do you love downtown?  If you're committed to making downtown Oregon City an awesome place to work and play, we'd love to have to join our volunteer committees!  These groups meet to address strategic projects and get things done that enhance the quality of our downtown.  Feel like a part of something big and join a committee!

Projects and Internships

Want to donate your unique skills, or maybe just work on a bright idea?  We're looking for people who are able to give focused, regular time to help work alongside our staff on special projects and ongoing lines to business to bring vitality and life to downtown.  If you've got a few months, we can help you accomplish something great!
